The Message is Simple
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Accept your assignments on earth, complete them, and become a true God’s man. To think like this requires a different perspective toward yourself, toward life, and toward your real day-to-day purpose. The life of a God’s man in life is much like the example the Father gave us through His son Jesus. You have different objectives than the men around you. You have eternal objectives. You partner with God in your life and make sure you are daily dialed in to the right channel — a secure connection to His Word and Spirit within you. Special Ops guys are great guys, not because they possess amazing talent, but because they possess amazing commitment to the cause. This is what makes them brave. This is why they are the men of mythical proportions.
You my brother are not a myth. Neither is your calling today, the calling to be one who leads in whatever capacity. The message is simple: accept your assignments on earth, complete them, and become a true God’s man. Remember the giver of the assignment, remember His words, and remember that He lives in you. To His Father He prayed, “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do” (John 17:4)
The apostle Paul would have made an outstanding Delta Force commander. He thought like one, but more important, he lived like one. He didn’t live for man but for the Supreme Commander. “The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me.”
The one thing that a God’s man has over a special Ops guy is more than talent and commitment — it’s His perfect love for him.
Father, thank you for being my Commander and Chief.
