The Mission

by admin ~ July 30th, 2017. Filed under: Brandenburg.

Sometimes when I hear “mission,” I think of NASA, the mission to the moon, or the Army and a military mission. A mission is a purpose to fulfill and Jesus told us what that purpose was while He was here and especially right before He left. His mission was accomplished, but the Lord Jesus Christ gave us a mission to continue after He was gone. That mission is wrapped up in what is now called, The Great Commission. The Great Commission is the most basic components of the mission Jesus left us to do. In the most basic way, the mission is to go and preach the gospel to every person on earth. Jesus broke that down a little bit in Acts 1, when He said it was to be witnesses both in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth. Two aspects of this is, one, “every creature,” every person on earth, and then, two, “both in” all of the places listed. A church has to think about more than right where it is. This is where supporting missionaries comes into fulfilling the mission Christ gave us.
