This quote from John Piper jolts us into remembering that
ultimately we only have one calling: to worship and exalt Jesus.
Maybe if/when hen we really "do" that, whole nations will be inescapably
and "automatically" drawn to Jesus. "When the
glory of the Lord shines over you, nations will be drawn to
your Light" Isaiah 60:1-3. But this does not excuse
us from being intentional about telling others the Amazing
News and also telling others to tell. That is missions.
Nowadays, folks are calling it "being missional."
Whatever you call it, call us to be part of it, baby!
If thoughts like "I don't
wanna wear one of those funky helmets and go to Africa to put ties
on the man and bras on the ladies" or "Missions is
sooo boring," come to mind...that's not what we have in mind
by "missions" or "missionary"..
is our very heart at 3D, because it is God's heart.
God only had one Son and He is a missionary. We all have
to play and pray, so join the most exciting and rewarding
unfinished task on the planet. With passion and compassion,
we breathe worship and missions (John 20:20-22) around the
world until Jesus comes! We are continually plotting short-
long-term missions around here. Our pester
(not a typo) Dave, is so radical that he often says, "Some
say you need a special call to be go as a missionary. But
according to the Bible, you'd better have a special call
to stay home!" So be warned! God is so in love with
you, he just might call you to the same career as his Firstborn.
