Yesterday I promised to connect your life’s mission to the first Passover. Before we go there, have you ever felt inadequate or empty? Did you know you have a more-than-enough mission? You might be surprised to learn that more-than-enough is:
- Why you have a mission
- The provision for your mission
- The expected result of your mission
The More-Than-Enough Mission – Exodus
God set a precedent in Egypt. It’s easy to miss this aspect of the first Passover. But once you see it, it’s easy to trace through Scripture! We will do a little of that. Here is one item from the first Passover preparations:
Now if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor nearest to his house are to take one according to the number of persons in them; according to what each man should eat, you are to divide the lamb.
That verse contains our more-than-enough mission. Do you see it?
The blood of the lamb on the doorpost of the house would cause the Death Angel to pass over that house. God gave this way of escaping His judgment on the land of Egypt. When God gives, what do we call that? We call it grace.
In this verse we see the instructions for families to gather together if necessary to consume the lamb. But look at it from an individual standpoint. What was happening in every larger family? They were partaking of the lamb together. No one could consume it by themselves. It’s more overt in this instruction to small families. So God is saying, If your family isn’t large enough, gather and share with another family. But large family or small, everyone has been shown grace and everyone is sharing. What’s your more-than-enough mission?
Share the Lamb!
Why is that your mission? Because His limitless grace is more than enough for you. What do you do with an abundance of anything? You share it! That is the precedent God set and it continues through Scripture.
I said earlier that more-than-enough is Why we have a mission. But it’s also the provision for our mission and the result of our mission. We will look at those tomorrow. And trust me, the further we trace God’s idea of more-than-enough, the more we get a sense of:
