You may have heard a phrase bouncing around Christian circles, to “live missionally,” but what does that mean?
People tend to think of being a missionary as a specific job for a rare and 'very religious' person, but the fact is that it is GOD who is on a mission and anyone who chooses to be a 'follower of Jesus' is signing up to be a missionary with Him. So, if it's every Christian's job, what is the job description?
If God has forgiven you and entered your life, two of your primary jobs on earth are:
You are ambassadors sent by God to reach your neighbors, coworkers, family and the world in His name (2 Corinthians 5:20).
The central plot of life on earth is God’s rescue mission. He is going to win, but the miracle is that He has invited us to be a part of it.
That’s a bold mission, but we don’t even know how to reach our neighborhoods. Even if we agree, how do we get started, stay on track and make a difference? As we look at the lives of those who are really going for it, 6 key elements stand out. Click on each one to see practical steps for how to set that up in your life.
