Living as a missionary is more about “being” than “doing”. Even if you’re part of a church that only refers to missionaries as those who go overseas to do ministry, the truth is, if you are a Christian, YOU are a missionary. It’s part of your identity!
This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll talk about the reality of living our lives–right where we’re at–as missionaries. This is what the Bible teaches, and it’s the life you were created and saved to live. Buckle up…this is going to be amazing!
The Church was never meant to be a building out on the edge of town. Jesus intended us to be a people of love and service who live out and proclaim the good news of his kingdom–right where we live. God’s missionary family (us Christians) are intended to be woven into the very fabric of the culture, shouldering sin and pain in the lives of others.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- Who the Bible calls “missionaries” or the “sent ones” in this life.
- How our missionary identity flows right from the heart of our missionary God.
- Why “Go and make disciples” was not a suggestion, but a command of Jesus.
- How to get started living as a missionary right where you live today.
From this episode:
“I have to be honest with you here. After living this way for close to two decades now–like a localized missionary–I don’t think there is a huge difference between being a missionary here in America compared to living this way in a foreign country. People are people. The biggest difference here is that I constantly feel two things pulling at me; my past experience of “going to church” instead of being the church, and my lack of faith that the gospel is truly good news for everyone and everything.”
