Australians are some of the most travelled people per capita in the whole world. There’s something in us that gives us a desire to travel to the nations. Unfortunately we do have a bit of a bad reputation in some countries for the way we behave. But I actually believe that one of the redemptive gifts on this nation, is that we’re called to be missionaries to the world. In Matthew 28, Jesus said “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them all the things I have commanded you. And I will be with you until the very end of the age. Maybe God’s opening a door for you to go on a short term mission trip or even a long term trip. Many Aussie missionaries are going to places like Africa, Asia, The Middle East, The Islands. Maybe God is stirring your heart to go out to preach the Gospel among the nations. Or maybe just to care for the poor while you’re there. Maybe you should go to the nations or maybe you should just start in your own backyard. Charles Spurgeon says “Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter”. When you hear a quote like that it really makes you think.

In a recent survey 71% of those with internet addiction are aged between 18 and 24. The study also found that 39% of Americans spend more time socialising online than they do in person. And with social media, many people check it first thing in the morning, throughout the day, when they get home and the last thing before they go to bed. And some people waste hours online without connecting to people face-to-face. I think we need to set boundaries with our screen time. Maybe check it in the morning, check it in the day, check it in the night and maybe have a 15 minute maximum. You need to decide what works out with your lifestyle. But remember God created us to have real relationships face-to-face. I’m all for using social media and the internet to reach out to people. It’s a great platform to share the gospel. But lets be careful and have moderation in all things.
I made it to the shops the other day at two minutes before closing time. They were asking people to go to the registers, so I bolted around the aisles, picking up anything I had on my list and anything else I could find as well. I knew my time was short and I had to make some split-second decisions. I had my daughter with me and when we made it to the checkouts she was freaking out, because she thought we’d get locked up all night. I explained to her that we would pay for our stuff and they would let us out. We had two different perspectives. I was in a rush to get as much as I could in my short time. She thought we were in a rush, because we were doomed to supermarket imprisonment if we didn’t make it to the doors in time. I think we can have different perspectives about our days on earth too. Some people want to make the most of their time and be effective on this earth. Others may be crippled with fear and have the wrong perspective about our time on earth. Doctors tell us that 10 out of 10 people die. We’ll all face our creator one day and we’ve got to make sure we’re ready. And we need to do what God has called us to do. I love what the Bible says about this. In 2 Timothy 4:5 it says: “Keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.” No matter what comes your way, lets do what God has called us to do. Lets be prepared and lets keep eternity and heaven in mind in all that we do.
Ben Fielding from Hillsong church speaks about leading worship at Parliament House.
Once upon a time there was a prince who was a master archer. He was so good, he believed he was the finest archer in the world. One day he came across a barn with painted targets along the entire side of the barn. There was a single arrow in the dead centre in every target on the side of the barn. He saw a young boy standing outside the barn, and he asked the boy “Who is this master archer that shot all these targets?”. “It was me!”, said the boy. And the prince demanded that he show him his skills. The boy grabbed his arrow; he took aim and the boy hit the side of the barn far away from any of the targets. Then the boy ran into the barn. He emerged with a brush and a can of paint. He painted a circle around the arrow he just shot. Then two more circles to form a target.
“That’s how I do it.”, said the boy. “First I shoot the arrow, then I paint the target”.
Many people are living their lives just shooting off without any direction; no clear plan. Author Robert Schuller says “If we plan to fail, we fail to plan”. Lets make sure that we’re aiming clearly at the call that God has placed in our heart. The Bible says that without vision people perish. What’s God’s vision for your life? Are you heading in the right direction? Lets make sure that we hit the target that’s set before us.
