I believe life is an assignment or a series of assignments, which is particularly significant for followers of Christ.  Mistreating or abusing our bodies, disease or accidents can cut our lives short, but that’s another blog!
Jesus saw His life as an assignment.  In His High Priestly Prayer, recorded in John 17, He says, “I have glorified You on the earth.  I have finished the work which You have given me to do.  And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was” (verse 4). 
Before facing the executioner’s sword, Paul wrote to the young preacher, Timothy, “The time of my departure is at hand.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race (course), I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).  He too, indicates that life is a series of assignments.  Among others, Paul’s two main assignments were to preach to the Gentiles and to write two-thirds of the New Testament.  Your Bible in part is the result of his completed assignments!
