Are You A Missionary

Do you go out unto all the nations preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, do you go out into the streets of your own nation, do you give generously and cheerfully into the mission programs at your church so that they can send forth missionairies, do you tell all the people you know about the good news of Jesus Christ? If you answered yes to any of these questions then I would have to say you are a Missionary.

Sometimes we think that only those who are actually on foreign soils doing God's work are missionaries, but that is not the case. We have been focused on Missions this month at our church, this is Mission's month for us and I have really enjoyed hearing the different missionaries who have come to speak as guest speakers this month. They do not come begging money they come to share the good work that God is doing through them around the world with the help of the missionaries here at home who support and send them.

We call these people Missionaires but Jesus called them disciples. We read in Matthew the "Great Commission" where Jesus is talking to His disciples and He tells them to go out and make disciples in all nations, baptizing in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Who did He tell to go? His disciples. Who were His disciples? His followers.

Are you a born again Christian following the commandments of Jesus? Then you too are a disciple. What did Jesus tell His disciples to do? Then you being a disciple now are to do the same. You have been commissioned by Jesus Himself to go into all the nations preaching His good news and baptizing in His name.

Matt. 28 v 18-20.......And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." AMEN.....

The end of the age has not come, and Jesus is still with you always. He is not sending you out on your own, but He says He goes with you. How many people will you tell the good news to this week? How many of us will accept this commission from the LORD?

I hope you are still reading each day the Bible, I have been out of pocket for a while, and the Lord has really spoken to me about shirking the responsibility He gave me to reach the nations through this blog spot. Don't get caught up in the things of the world and put Jesus somewhere to come back to later, but spend each day as if it were your last, doing His good work.
