“Your mission Wayne, should you decide to accept it"

What vision for your life have you received through studying God’s word? How does that affect your day-to-day decisions? Your long-term decisions? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1318).

The end result of my study of Scripture is to see my role as an instrument of God’s love. As long as I am in this role I am free in scope of word thought, and deed. I have no bounds; I have no barriers. My commission as an instrument of God’s love means that risk takes on a whole new character for self-interest beckons that I accept short-term risk within the context of long-term assurances. That is, short-term anxiety and fear are put in their place by long-term commitments. I need fear no man nor be intimidated by them for I do not look at restrictions but freedoms of spirit yielding profound implications for the structure of relationships. I worship no man no matter what their rank or status. I worship only God and am committed only to his interests. This is possible because I realize that divine will seeks the good of mankind not its ill. His object is abundance of life in full panoply not restrictive mendacious ploys arising from greed and selfishness. Therefore, I am not ashamed if I am smeared with the accusations of others for “…I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Timothy 1:12 NKJV).

Now we must ask in all frankness if danger lurks within assurance. Cannot one go off the “deep end” and through delusion turn treacherous even to the will of God? It is this question that forces one into a corner in which God’s grace is the only escape, for it is beyond any mortal to underwrite certainty rather than to live by faith. Does one persist in the fruit of the Spirit? That is the key accountability question that can be asked in stark pragmatism by anyone.
