WHAT MAKES A MISSIONARY?…

Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”……………

    This question has been on my heart lately.  Seems Father is revving up His motor, touching the hearts of His people to go here or there on the soil of the USA or some other land of His creation.  He wants men and women to be willing to go.  They are called Missionaries. It takes much to prepare for this calling.  They learn the language of the people, pick up their lives and pack lots of crates to relocate.  And Oh My! They have to do that scary thing called “Raising Support”.  That means going out traveling sometimes many miles, asking people for money to support something they feel is a strong need and burden. Then with blind Faith they head out and the rest is History.  Not long after, you begin to hear the amazing reports come in of souls being reached and lives changed because of obedience on their part and then those on their team who believe in giving to the cause begin to see the impact of the Jesus Work and how His work goes on… 

    In our church, we have been blessed to have had a couple leading our worship team, we fell in love with them. You could tell they loved God. Yes we’re saddened to lose Grant and Sarah, but willing to give them to the Mission Field they have chosen . They announced the calling specifically working with children, don’t know if it is on our soil or foreign, but our blessings go with them.   Thank you Grant and Sarah for the months you served on the FBC Worship Team and your willingness to go into the future of His Plan….

    My thoughts go back to meeting a young lady who shared with us her unique calling to serve as a Missionary in another country.  She had a hunger to go reach children just like Grant and Sarah. Jenny raised her financial support in no time and before we knew it she was in Romania. Her burden is to reach out to the children who live on the streets, needing to know the One who loves them. Just think how that works.  God is wanting to reach those who are lost.  He uses His children to go and tell others they can become His children through Jesus Christ His Son who died on a Cross for the sin of the world. 

    Now I have a renewed appreciation for those who go answering the call of Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”

    But one thought further, aren’t we all Missionaries?  Each day we come in contact with people who need to know the Truth!  How about you?  Take a look at this short video and ponder in your heart how your life is making a difference.  We only have a short time here on this earth!….
