“Mission Creep”

Mission Creep — “the expansion of a project or mission beyond its original goals.”

The last week has forever embedded the term “mission creep” in our family lore. ūüôā I’ll skip the details¬†— suffice to say the term will¬†NOT be forgotten.

Just a quick thought from Sunday’s sermon.¬† Luke 23:28-31 gives the last recorded words of Jesus before He was crucified.¬† He said, “Weep not for Me.”

You don’t weep for someone who is carrying out His plan, on His way to His greatest victory.¬† The Cross was not “mission creep,” something that wasn’t planned.¬† It didn’t “happen” to¬†Him¬†— He laid down His life, just as He came to do.

Unlike us, God never suffers “mission creep.”
