The Church (1)

Our Bible verses today tell us the mission of God’s church. The mission of the church is to go and teach people about Jesus, baptize them and then help them reach out to other people. When we do this, we are missionaries — people who are sent by God to share the Good News about Jesus.
It is interesting to realize that Jesus was a missionary, too. Jesus came from heaven to earth. His purpose was to find lost people and save them. We should follow Jesus’ example of lovingly sharing God’s message with people.
Being a missionary doesn’t mean that you have to go to a foreign country. There are many people who live close to you that don’t know about Jesus. Recently I helped a friend cut weeds in his yard. That gave me an opportunity to tell my friend about Jesus.
Look for opportunities today to be a missionary for God.
