The Mission of God is too important to leave to missionaries .
What is The Mission God?
The Mission of God is to seek and save those who are lost, it is to rescue, to heal, to restore through love and compassion and the finished and redemptive work of Christ, all people to a relationship with him. This “missio dei” is the sole purpose of the church and the Modus Operandi of every follower of Jesus Christ.
Who are to carry out The Mission of God?
The Mission of God is not for a hand full of people to fulfill, it’s a mission to which God has called all of us to fulfill.
We acknowledge, celebrate, and support the call of those commissioned by God to foreign and homeland missions. But we are obligated by God to remind us all that the sacred and the secular divide is a hindrance to God’s mission and it prevents Christians from impacting the culture around them.
We must reject the idea that there are jobs out there that are more holy than others. Only then can we embrace the fact that God wants to use every one of us and we don’t have to become evangelists or missionaries – unless God is calling us to do that.
We must also realize that the marketplace is as well a mission field and those who work in the marketplace are missionaries commissioned by God to witness to the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The true Church is not the building or places we meet for worship on weekdays or weekends. We bring the church in those places. We are the church, each individual member. We should remember that every time we step out the doors of our places of worship we are entering the mission field.
It is in Corporate America. It is where you work and where you play. Let’s represent him well and spread his good news everywhere we go.
