Our Everlasting Impulse
Impulse: a sudden strong and unreflective urge or desire to act. What makes your heart beat? What starts your engine? What makes you get up in the morning? Why are we on earth, what’s the point? Is Christ your all superior joy?
As I look at some of the greatest missionaries that walked the earth through biographies, autobiographies, and other writings. I find something that is common in all of them: an everlasting joy for Christ. So many times we get lost in college, ministry, school, work, family, you name it. We forget the point. Our point of life is to worship and glorify God in everything.
These missionaries urged, craved, thirsted, hungered, yearned, and longed for Jesus. They wanted Jesus to be known. That desire started with a love of God. As followers of Jesus we need to be in God’s word. We need to commune, delight, thirst, hunger, and crave Him. Being in the Bible transforms and changes us.
Friends come and go, possessions get old, and earth will perish. We will fall, sin, and die, but Christ is everlasting! He was here when there was nothing. He is: inexpressible, magnificent, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing, all powerful conqueror. God is our everlasting impulse, never-ending savior.
It’s God who drives missions, not man. Taste and see He is good!
