Committing to God’s Mission
“For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them... I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.” – 1 Corinthians 9:19, 22b
“Every true disciple is born into the kingdom of God as a missionary.” – Desire of Ages, 195
Missionary work, evangelism, these are not fields of service reserved only for the pastor or trained evangelist. Every believer, in whose heart Jesus dwells through the Spirit, is called to shine a light in this world through words of truth and actions of love.
Why not ask Christ right now to show you who and where your mission field is today? Plead for genuine compassion for lost souls and the courage to share your faith with love to the people in your sphere of influence.
