• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Who is your one?

Last week, I attended church with my older brother. I was taken by a statement and a slogan that the pastor shared with this group of believers.

He read a familiar text from Ephesians 1:1-14, emphasizing these verses: “Blessed by the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.”

Then he made this statement: “I want to talk with you about ‘your story’.  However, ‘your story’ does not start with who you think you are.  Your story begins with who God says you are.”  God set His love on me, on you.  He pursued us ‘one by one’ and chose to make us part of His family.  “Mission,” he said, “starts with knowing who we are.”

That resonated with me.  It was the Gospel applied to or being worked out in mission.  Our story is wone-bisrapped up in Him and our mission flows out of that identity.

Then he shared this slogan via a question: “Who is your one?”  Who is the person God has put on your heart?  Are you close to anyone who is far from God?  Are you in touch with anyone who is wondering how they fit into God’s mission in the world?

Who is your one?”

As a worker with World Team, your ‘story’ begins with what God says about you, “who is your one?”

It’s another way of stating the Central Ministry Focus of our WT Ministry Framework.

Who is your one?”
