The Plan & Mission of God

Sunday, 12 May 2019

Does God have a mission, a plan, or a purpose that he himself is working toward? The Bible says he does. In Ephesians 1:9-10, one of the most succinct definitions of mission, Paul says: “(God has) made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfilment — to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.” God is in the business of bringing all of creation — all things in heaven and on earth — into a healed, reconciled, and restored unity in Christ and through Christ and for Christ. And that is the mission of God. It is cosmic and creational. It begins with creation and ends with new creation, all focused on Jesus Christ. This talk helps us to get a better grip on the whole teaching of the Bible on the mission that God has entrusted to us.
