I wrote this for our church blog today.
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15
I have been thinking about the above missions statement.
When God saves a person, He calls him to good works that He has preselected for him, according to Ephesians 2:10. Many of us are called to keep working in the secular field in which we have always worked. No surprise there—it takes money to finance missions, and some of us have to earn that money.
Others are called to the gospel ministry. Some in the U.S. are called to pastor churches here while some are called to move around more in evangelism within the U.S. borders (that could also include church planters here).
Then there are the foreign missionaries.
Parents often have a hard time when their child is called to foreign missions. The distance is the first issue.
