Dreams: Driven By the Great Commission


“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” — 1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV

We all carry with us our own dreams—something we are passionate about, strive for, and place our hope in. Dreams inspire us to work toward something bigger than ourselves; they motivate us to work to be the best we can be and do the best we can do. Dreams give passion for life and create purpose in the everyday.

As believers, we are called to live with a Kingdom-mindset, living each day driven by the Great Commission and the responsibility to tell others about the Good News of the Gospel. Our dreams, our aspirations, our joys—they are all to point others closer to Jesus. Living out our dreams can be a way of carrying out the Great Commission.

This month at Sozo we want to celebrate dreams, encouraging others to pursue their dreams in the light of eternity. God has given each of our children a dream in order to make them thrive for His glory and for their good.

At the end of the month, we will host our Annual Dinner! We are excited to celebrate the big dreams—both the individual dreams of each of our children and the big-picture dreams of Sozo as a whole—with our Sozo community and family! Join us and read about some of Sozo Children’s dreams!
