There are two missions we are obligated to carry out during our life journey. The first, is to seek Truth throughout our lifetime. The second, is simply to be good. Engrave it in your mind that life is just one big board game where you have to make it from start to finish by being good. That is all you have to do. The hardest part, is dealing with all the obstacles that prevent smooth sailing. The trick is, to always strive to be the right person in all situations – regardless of personal cost to you. Your aim is to make sure the right book on your shoulder weighs more that the bad book on the left. The scales are real. Regardless of your chosen faith, there is a measurement system to be found in all of the world's religions. After all, does it make sense for all souls, good or bad, to end up in the same place? Of course not. To really secure the very best setting in the afterlife, the vibrations of your good deeds must surpass your death.

Even the maturing disciple can find groups, Bible studies, and prayer materials to help them grow for the mission of Christ.

The Church is just now beginning to understand that there is much work to do if we are to engage in mission that is not limited to one worldly abode alone.

And because of this crippling disbelief, we settle for the lesser lives that we were never built for. Yet despite the enormity of our skepticism, it is well within our reach to smash such a crippling disbelief for, in fact, that is the very thing that we were built for.
