Mission World

4 Jul

Mission World…

Who was the first missionary? Who was the first one to leave home for the foreign mission field? Paul? Silas? Barnabas? Philip? Peter? No. It was Jesus.

Jesus left His home, Heaven, to come to the distant shores of a foreign land… the planet earth. All missions are reenactments and manifestations of the incarnation of Jesus leaving Heaven because of God’s love and entering this world.

If Jesus is the first missionary, then this world is the first and primary mission field. But if earth is your home, how can it be your mission field? If you’re born again, then earth is not your home. You’re born from above. Your home is heaven.

You see, this world is either your home or your mission field. If you’re not saved, it’s your home. If you’re saved then it’s not your home, it’s your mission field. So why on earth are you on earth?

To hang out, get rich, expect from and take from the world? No. You’re on earth to be a blessing, a light. To show forth God’s love and spread forth His salvation. Get moving. You’re already in the mission field.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Isaiah 60:1-3

Remember what your mission on earth is today. Go out and show the lost the way to God’s house – a more permanent home – it’s called Heaven.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
