Just started working on furthering my education recently through a great correspondence degree program at Global University. Cool name for a college, huh? While studying for one of my classes, I came across a great quote about “mission” that I wanted to share with you.
“What does it mean to be sent on a mission? The word mission refers to someone being sent somewhere with a task to do.
How often have we seen a diplomat sent on a special mission to try to help two warring factions reach a peace settlement! The Church has been given a similar assignment to a world at war with God. It is called the Great Commission. Just as an ambassador is expected to give the message authorized by his government, we must proclaim God’s message: “Be reconciled to God” (2 Cor 5:20).
We are authorized to offer terms for peace (repentance, faith, and obedience to God) and to point to the path of rehabilitation: “The Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost” (Luke 19:10).
Every believer is commissioned by the Lord to do his part in this task.”
WHERE we do it is up to Him.
