What comes to mind when you hear that word.
How about that? Different with the s?
Matthew 28 gave us all the great commission-
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the end of the age."
We all have a responsibility to spread the word of Jesus.
There is an organization Venezuela For Christ that is doing just that. They are providing seminary training for pastors in Venezuela. Someone had a vision, and this is where it has led.
Missions are all around us. They are in our own family, our neighborhood, our community, our county, our state, our country, our world.
See how they expanded?
Each one of those areas need something. Whether it be material things, spiritual guidance or just an ear to listen.
We are all created different to do different things. You may sign up to head an organization that will collect clothing items for those in need. If the person living next door did the same thing, great. There will be a lot of clothing to be had by all. If the lady who lived two doors down collected clothing well, you're on your way to making sure everyone has something to wear.
But we all can't do the same thing.
Not all of us are going to go global in our commission. People are needed locally as well.
So how about you? Do you have a mission? A way to reach out?
Remember, when much is given, much is expected in return. (I know a lot of people have said that, but I"m going to give the credit to Beth Moore-cause I heard it from her first.)
