The Call to Mission – Part One

“The harvest is abundant but the labourers are few” (Luke 10:2a).

This call was given by Jesus to be his disciples 2000 years ago and He still gives it to all of us. Today the harvest is plenty, but why are there so few labourers?

Jesus is calling each and every one of us. But are we ready to leave our comfort zones? Are we ready to fish for men? Are we ready to rely on Him and His grace alone?

When we work for Jesus we are called to be focused on our goal- not be worried about the world or where to get the resources from. We are called to just trust in God’s providence.

Luke 10:16 says “We have been given authority… Let us go in His name, empowered by the Holy Spirit, even when we feel we are weak, or we lack the resources, let us not lose hope but remember that we have been given power to tread upon the serpents… And nothing will harm you (Luke 10: 19)

As instruments of God we are to bring healing- physical, emotional and spiritual, to His people. So as Jesus said-

“Go on your way”- let us march forward without fear. (Luke 10: 3a)

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
