Missionaries (1)

The word “mission” means a special job. So a missionary is a person who does a special job. The Bible tells us about many people who were missionaries. These people told others the Good News about Jesus. Today and for the next few days, we will look at some of these missionaries.
The first missionary we will talk about is Jesus. Jesus used His whole life to share the Good News with other people. This Good News was that He would die for sinners and then rise again.
Jesus shared the Good News in several ways. First, Jesus did many miracles that showed He was powerful and that He was truly God’s Son. Second, Jesus taught about God’s plan for His life on earth. Jesus told His followers that His job was to come and die for sinners. In verse 43b of our Bible Reading Jesus said, “I must tell the Good News about God’s kingdom to other towns too. This is why I was sent.”
Jesus wants you to know the Good News, too. Study the Bible and learn more about Jesus’ sacrifice for you.
