The Girl who is Going on the Missions Trip

 I have been going to the farmers market, it is amazing in this town how much saying "all the money goes to a missions trip to Ukraine;"  I have heard myself be called "the girl who is going on a missions trip" a couple of times.
we receive names from the world, such as, the Gentle girl, the Vain Girl, the Lazy boy, the Responsible boy, the girl who is going on the missions trip...  We are "named" for our actions, now this is what is expected from us, some of the expectations are low, some times they are high, but they are all expectations, and when we have low expectations we won't rise above them because there is "no need" to.   When we have high expectations we either fail all the time or we fail lots of the time.
1 Peter 2:16
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover up for evil, but living as servants of God.

God calls us to live freely, away from the demanding (or not so demanding) expectations of the world.
When we are in Christ, we are called to live in the freedom of Christ, living as servants of God. I earned the name (by some) of 'the girl who is going on the missions trip'  because I put up a sign and I told people. what do you think are some names that people could name you? rise above the low expectations of the world, and freely follow our perfect Savior Jesus Christ.

Philippians 4:23  The grace of the LORD Jesus Christ be with you all.
