Crosspoint: Jesus calls His Church to fulfill its destiny!
Key Scripture: Acts 20:22-24 "And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. 23I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace. (NIV)

4. What steps is Jesus challenging you to take today toward
fulfilling your destiny in Him?
