Part 1: Vision

I am sitting in my study praying and thanking God for this precious family we call Commission and all the wonderful people who are part of it. We are all on a great adventure to see thousands of lives transformed through hundreds of churches in tens of nations. We’re transforming lives under King Jesus then building transformed communities that transform nations.

We are all on this exciting journey, reaching towards a great vision and guaranteed inheritance. Westpoint 2018 gave encouragement to each of us to put the final destination into our “spiritual Sat Navs”. We heard a lot of great teaching at Westpoint about the Kingdom of God and these are helpful to listen to again as we seek God for this coming year. You can listen again by clicking here.

I am praying for the family of Commission to be a disciple-making family, each connected to Commission’s amazing vision. The book “The Blessed Life of the Kingdom of God” is a small step in this process. I am praying for thousands across the Commission family to use this tool in personal study times, small groups, discipleship and even for churches to do a short series on the Sermon on the Mount over the coming year. This tool can be used each week to discuss and study a section at a time, watering the seed of God’s word.


I have put together this series in the hope that you find this a useful add-on to the book. Every blog will include a few related questions, these can be used in personal reflection or to be used in a small group discussion. We hope you find these useful.

1: If you were to describe yourself as a tree what tree would you choose and why?

2: Would you describe your life as blessed/flourishing? What season of life do you feel you’re in at the moment?

3: In what ways is “Christian flourishing” unlike the world’s description of “doing well”?

4: What areas of your life do you consider to be fruitful? What changes could you make, in line with God’s vision, to make you more fruitful?

5: Can you articulate the vision of Commission? Have you considered what part you could play in unlocking this vision to others?
