Quote of the Day | 5.13.15

“The apostles learned “Missionary Principles and Practices 101” at the feet of Jesus, the master missionary. There is no better place, therefore, to begin forming a New Testament missionary definition than by studying the life of our Lord Jesus Himself. The Lord, who founded the Church and gave us our missionary marching orders, was, in fact, the first missionary in the New Testament sense. “As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you,” He said in John 20:21. He best models for us the work and message of a New Testament missionary. In this verse Jesus calls Himself a “sent one,” or missionary, in the same way the term is most commonly used today. He is clearly saying here that additional “sent ones” are to be included in His missionary band and that these missionaries are to go and do the work of the Gospel as He did. How vital it is, then, for us to do our missionary work as Jesus did!”
~ K.P. Yohannan, Come, Let’s Reach the World ~
