A Heart For The World
In September of last year (2016), our church conducted a Missions Emphasis Month. We called the series, “A Heart For The World.” It is so easy to forget the world around us that desperately needs the gospel. My Pastor and the elder team gave messages as well as conducted interviews with our missionaries. The emphasis stirred my heart and renewed my focus to the imperative given to us by Christ in Matthew 28:19-20 to go into all the world and make disciples. I believe that one of the greatest ways to maintain a healthy spiritual walk with Jesus is to live on mission. This is the heart of Christianity. Christianity does not primarily consist of do’s and don’ts. It is first and foremost Go and Tell.
