|Directions from God for our
God has directions for all of our lives. He does not want you to wander around
not knowing where you are going or what you are doing. This message is to help
us see the path that God has laid out for us all. He has given us a map. It is
His Word and His Word is His perfect Will for our lives. This message is also
good to remind us at the ending of a year and the beginning of a New Year. God
does not want us to walk about in darkness but to have the Light of Light in us.
If we follow the directions that God has for us we will not stumble. Here are
seven signposts with directions for us to walk the Walk of Faith.
I. Signpost and Direction #1. OUR ASSIGNMENT:
-Mark 16:15 KJV And he said unto them, Go ye into all the

1. The supreme task of the church is the evangelization of the world.

done for us. Try it, it works.

if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall

the minister. Jesus gave the responsibility to the whole church.

mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I
