One of our team members drew this quote to my attention, and it fits so well into many of the themes we have posted on this blog:
“The first great passion of missions, therefore, is to honor the glory of God by restoring the rightful place of God on the hearts of people who presently think, feel and act in ways that dishonor God every day. [We] do this by bringing forth a worshipping people from among all the unreached peoples of the world. If you love the glory of God, you cannot be indifferent to missions. This is the ultimate reason Jesus Christ came into the world. Romans 15:8-9 says, “Christ became a servant to the circumcised…in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy.” Christ came to get glory for His Father among the nations. If you love what Jesus Christ came to accomplish, you love missions.”
John Piper, Let the Nations be Glad, page 231
Paul calls this ministry being an “ambassador for Christ, God making his appeal through us…be reconciled to God” (2 Corinthians 5:20). Since this brings God glory, get involved in His mission so men, women and children worship our God and Savior.
