Sunday morning we had the privilege of hearing, at both NL locations, disciples who had been on mission during the normal flow of life. This led to salvations, prayer blessings, and sowing of kingdom seeds.These stories highlighted that even when going to the mall, being at work, or in a restaurant eating it is possible to still be on mission.
Remember that our everyday responsibilities are not IN the way of mission but rather ON the way to mission. A disciple does not stop working, eating, and doing errands. No, a disciple does all of these practical things but is now doing them with a higher purpose. An unbeliever just does these things to survive and to be entertained, but a disciple now lives for a greater end. A disciple lives to know Jesus and to make him known. But instead of quitting all of these practical things, the disciple now uses them as a means to bring the kingdom of God to earth.
Are you on mission in your everyday life? It is a delusion to think that you have to wait to go to Africa in order to have kingdom impact. Remember that, mission is where you are, and where you are is an opportunity for mission.
Here are a couple of great testimonies of disciples who merge practical living with mission. Be blessed and inspired.
