“Mission is not what we do, it is what we become.” – Dr. Frank Strang
As we become more like God, we are yet further drawn into mission with God. It is inevitable. To ignore the mission of God is to turn away from him. What is the mission of God? To reconcile the world to him, to restore the unity between creator and creation. It was for this purpose that he sent Jesus… to seek and to save that which was lost.
We are to live on mission, in everything we say and do. As stated above, it is what we become. The Great Commission is for all of us.
Does that mean that all of us are missionaries? It depends on how you define the term. If a missionary is someone on mission for God, then yes, we are all missionaries. If a missionary is someone who moves to a different culture and shares the love of Jesus in there, then no, we are not all that kind of missionary.
We are to be the light in the darkness wherever God places us, and our heart is to be for the world to know Jesus; so, whether God sends you somewhere or keeps you put, be that light and pray for the world. Let your influence impact all places through your words, deeds, and resources.
Become the mission of God!
