On mission

Romans 10:17  So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Where should I go on mission?  Your first mission field is at home.  If you’re a parent, then your primary assignment on mission is to reach your family and make them disciples.  This is an ongoing task that never ends and your job is never done.  If you don’t have family at home, you still have a mission right around you.  Can you think of some neighbors you could help out and show the love of Christ?

All around you are opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Faith begins with hearing, so tell everyone you can.  Tell the cashier at the checkout line, tell the taxi driver.  Tell your teacher or your partner.  Share the story of what God’s done in your life and let it be known that you are His.

Tell His story through words and through actions by the way you live your life.  Share with those who will hear and always be ready to give an answer for the hope that is in you because of Christ Jesus.  Tell people the Gospel, but do it with gentleness and respect, never with arrogance or judgement.  Love God enough to tell everyone about Him.
