Every Member a Missionary

Discipleship is a direction, not a destination. What I mean by that is that if we are not moving closer to the Lord, then we are moving further from Him. There is no point where we can declare that we are mature or “mature enough.” There’s no concept of retirement in the Bible. Indeed, many of the Bible figures were working in the ministry well past the ages of our members, and Titus 2 specifically speaks to what older men and women should be doing.

To this end, being a disciple of Christ means that we must continue on our journey making other disciples. The mindset we must therefore foster is that it is everyone’s job to minister, everyone’s job to be a missionary, and everyone’s job to grow.

What About Holding a Missions Trip To Your Own City?

April 23rd, 2018 Viewed 532 times

Every year students in high school and college feel the need to pack up their things and be part of missions activity in a different country or location.  Thousands of dollars will be raised for this endeavor, and an impact will be made on those kids seeing how others live and how to share the gospel.  This is not to knock these missions trips at all, for often times our young adults need to have their perspectives challenged, and for building projects and the like, sometimes you need the skilled labor.

But I’m beginning to wonder if the time, money and talents would be better off used to have a missions trip to your own neighborhoods, your own parks, etc.
