Carry the Light

lightMissions is taking the Light to where there is darkness.  Missions is not only crossing the sea to a distant land, for it might mean carrying the Light to your coworker. It might mean carrying it to your neighbor across the street. It might mean carrying it to your child sitting across the dinner table.

Missions is taking the Gospel to where it has not been heard or responded to. Missions, no matter where the engagement takes place, near or far, is carrying the true Light of Jesus Christ into the darkness. ~ An inspiring paraphrased thought from CCRagamuffin who insinuatingly asks, “Can we all be missionaries?” “Why… of course we can!”

About mtsweat

Seeking the rest that is only promised and found in Christ Jesus, along with my treasured wife of more than twenty-five years, we seek to grow in our relationship with our Heavenly Father, walk with the Holy Spirit as He moves our hearts, loving others always as Jesus loves us, and carry the news of His glory, the wonderful gospel, that gives light and life where there once was only darkness.

  1. We *ARE* ambassadors for Christ.
    The question is whether or not we reflect Him to all we encounter.

    very well written post! YES… as was said “sometimes the darkness is in our neighborhood, the work place and even within our own families”. If there was ever a time for the one True Gospel to be carried to everyone… it is NOW.
    Be blessed as you continue to broadcast the truth!

    Christopher Wright stated that “We ask ‘Where does God fit into the story of my life?’ when the real question is ‘Where does my little life fit into the great story of God’s mission?” …God is on a mission, and in His great love, grace, and mercy, He invites us along…from anywhere to anywhere. Shall we go?? OF COURSE!!!!!!!!!!
