All the elements of what it means to be a follower of Jesus are “in submission” to the Purposes of God in our lives

Looking closely at the image below gives you a good opportunity to remind you (and us all for that matter) what it is like to live the Kingdom of God.  All of what God does…through His revelation of His nature and character to the world is wrapped up in God's mission of mercy and grace.  When my friend, Paul Mueller, shared this image, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to underscore what is often forgotten (as it collides with our agendas, perceived theological and biblical need to posture and prove others wrong, etc.) that if you follow Jesus, you are a clear purpose.  You see, wthout mission our entire purpose for knowing anything about God is worthless…mission is embedded in God's character and nature…since we are created "Imago Dei" we discover our true identity in "Missio Dei." Thanks Paul…in this instance, a picture is worth more than a 1000 words!!
