Have you ever set a goal for yourself and worked hard to achieve it? (make a team, get a grade, accomplish something) What did you do?
Why is it important that we have goals and things we are working toward?

THE GREAT comMISSION
Before Jesus went to be with the Father he gave us this mission (goal):
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20

Why is this something that is important to Jesus?
Why is it easy for us to go days or weeks without even thinking about this important mission God put us on?
