God calls each of us to follow Jesus in making disciples of all nations. And as Christians, we are already a part of God’s mission.
The starting place for Mission is found in God Himself as revealed in Scripture. God is the author and prime-mover in Mission. Yet he calls us to engage with him in his mission to planet earth. The Bible provides both the record of God’s involvement in our world as well as the supreme revelation in His Son, Our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. It also demonstrates how God has been engaged in mission from before time began and has continued throughout the history of the human race.
As John Stott puts it “The primal mission is God’s, for it is he who sent his prophets, his Son and his Spirit”. The triune God sends the Church into the world to share the Good News about Jesus Christ."
The real question is, how can we live intentionally with this in mind and how can we get involved?
