This morning I was reading Piper’s book “Let the Nations be Glad.” In it, he talks about The Name. He points out that Jesus’ ministry and prayers were focused around the glorification of the Name of God. His call to people is to leave everything and follow Him for the sake of His name. (Matt 19:29) Is this our goal in life and in missions? The glory of His Name?
In the following posts we’re going to find out more about His Name and how it affects our mind in missions, our prayers, and our lives. For now, please join me in prayer that we will know His name and abandoned all else for the sake of His name.
Father, turn our eyes upon You. Teach us Your name. Stir our hearts to seek out what it means. Make our missions not centered around Your work but around Yourself and Your glory. May the persecuted church, those who are translating Your Word, and the missionaries You are now raising up delight in Your name and, forsaking all else, pursue It’s glorification. We praise You because You a a glorious God Who has called us and equipped us for this task. Fill us with Your Spirit, Father. In Your Name we pray. Amen.
