    Missionary Weapons (2)

    Ministering in Everyday Opportunities. Ministering in everyday opportunities that surround us does not mean that we select our own surroundings— it means being God’s very special choice to be available for use in any of the seemingly random surroundings which He has engineered for us. The very character we exhibit in our present surroundings is an indication of what we will be like in other surroundings.

    Missionary Weapons (1)

    Worshiping in Everyday Occasions. We presume that we would be ready for battle if confronted with a great crisis, but it is not the crisis that builds something within us— it simply reveals what we are made of already. Do you find yourself saying, “If God calls me to battle, of course I will rise to the occasion”? Yet you won’t rise to the occasion unless you have done so on God’s training ground.

    The Method of Missions

    Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations… —Matthew 28:19

    Jesus Christ did not say, “Go and save souls” (the salvation of souls is the supernatural work of God), but He said, “Go…make disciples of all the nations….” Yet you cannot make disciples unless you are a disciple yourself. When the disciples returned from their first mission, they were filled…

    What is a Missionary?

    Jesus said to them again, “…As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” —John 20:21

    A missionary is someone sent by Jesus Christ just as He was sent by God. The great controlling factor is not the needs of people, but the command of Jesus. The source of our inspiration in our service for God is behind us, not ahead of us. The tendency today…

    The Insanity of Faith

    Written By Adelena Oh, Singapore Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1) It seems crazy to believe in something that’s not there yet, to have complete certainty that something’s going to happen even though there is no physical evidence. Yet Hebrews 11:1 describes […]

    The Key to the Missionary’s Message

    He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. —1 John 2:2

    The key to the missionary’s message is the propitiation of Christ Jesus— His sacrifice for us that completely satisfied the wrath of God. Look at any other aspect of Christ’s work, whether it is healing, saving, or sanctifying, and you will see that there is nothing limitless about those. But—…

    The Key to the Missionary’s Work

    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…” —Matthew 28:18-19

    The key to the missionary’s work is the authority of Jesus Christ, not the needs of the lost. We are inclined to look on our Lord as one who assists us in our endeavors for God. Yet our Lord places Himself as the absolute sovereign and supreme Lord over His…

    One Day, Every Nation

    One summer I spent a month in Bolivia, living with missionaries at a fledgling Bible school. Different jobs awaited me each day. Sometimes I cooked, cleaned, or did laundry. But every day I worked on construction projects. I loved learning all of the different tasks (okay, not the laundry!). One day, a pair of missionaries from another religion came to the school to tell us about their beliefs and to challenge ours. The thought of answering their questions intimidated me. I put my head down and kept working while a friend talked with them. I remember thinking, “I’m glad I…

    Have you been on a short-term mission trip before? If you haven’t, picture these three scenarios

    Quitting my Job for Nepal

    I remember distinctly the speaker’s call that Sunday: give one year of your life to missions. It was during the “missions month” in my church.

    “Fear of the Lord” . . . what does it mean?

    What does “fear of the Lord” mean? Does it mean we should cower and cringe . . . hoping that God won’t punish us for our mistakes? Today on Discover the Word, the team discusses a helpful way of thinking about what it means to “fear the Lord.” It’s kind of a surprising end to […]

    To know God and make Him known

    Fulfillment is found in many things, a challenging career, a happy family, or a fun hobby. But no matter what we occupy our time with, we need to remember our core mission, which is to know God and make Him known. Today on Discover the Word, the team discusses the joy that comes from helping […]

    God wants to rescue all men and women!

    How do you set your priorities? Today on Discover the Word, the team talks about why we should make it our priority to show the world God’s graciousness, His favor, and His love. It’s the same reason proclaimed in Psalm 67 . . . so that the world would know that God wants to rescue all […]

    His face shines upon us . . . and not just for our good

    “Us four and no more and close the door!” Ever heard that expression? It means, “Lord, bless our little group,  because that’s all I’m concerned about!” But that’s not how God operates. Today on Discover the Word, our team continues their discussion on Psalm 67, showing us that God causes His face to shine upon […]

    My Brief Encounter with Adoniram Judson

    I had not heard of Adoniram Judson until I came across the biography about him, “Adoniram Judson: How Few There Are Who Die So Hard!” by Bible teacher and theologian John Piper. Intrigued, I decided to read about this “obscure” missionary that Piper had taken time to write about.
