The earlier you discover your mission, the better, because you'll live life with zeal. But how can you discover your mission?....
The most influential personality in the history of humankind is Jesus Christ; His enthusiasm for God is still burning in His followers today. That is due to His Holy Spirit, and because He has all the power in Heaven and Earth; God gave it to Him.
His great mission to the people is this: "Go into all the world, and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name, they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands, and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and those people will get well."
"After the Lord Jesus had thus spoken, he was taken up into heaven, and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his words by the signs that accompanied it."
