  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

December 2, 2011 - Living Our Mission

By Dorothy Rugg

When you think of the word “missions,” what comes to mind? A remote place where you are surrounded by a different culture and living far from home? Or do you look at missions with a sense of urgency, with a need of proclaiming the good news, with a desire to help others to discover the joy of loving and serving the Lord Jesus Christ no matter where you are?

Do you see yourself as a missionary? Throughout God’s Word we are called to represent Christ in all we say and do.

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, NASB).

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19,20).

Everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is commissioned to go and tell the good news. What is the good news? That Jesus loves people, that Jesus came and took our place on the cross, and that by dying He made a way for us to once again be in relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Missions is so much more than giving a few dollars every now and then to someone we would define as a missionary. Missions takes commitment on our part to live, to pray, to serve and to go, according to Christ’s will for us — whether across the street or across the world. Missions is living a life surrendered to the One who gave His life for us.
