“Every Christian is to be a world Christian, and the Great Commission is to be at the center of every Christian’s activity.” I heard these words from a mentor of mine named Tom Cheely many years ago. My new job as a missions pastor was beginning, and I didn’t have a clue what I was to do each day. His simple conviction helped me to see that every Christian is to live so that disciples are made in all nations.
Our theme for our Missions month is “Here and There.” We are convinced that the greatness of God must be displayed here (people in our city) and there (all people in every city). We call this God’s “mission” in the world that He has given to every Christian and every church.
May God remind us this month that we have a crucial role to play in fulfilling the promise of Habakkuk 2:14 (look it up!). Ask God to show us how He sees the world. Then ask Him to grant us the courage to obey Him in whatever He asks of us.
So all may hear the gospel,
