Your missional responsibility came with your conversion.
Your missional responsibility is to people, not places.
Your missional commitment connects you with God’s eternal purpose.
Your missional commitment is worthy of sacrifice.
7 I was made a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by the working of His power.
8 This grace was given to me—the least of all the saints—to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of the Messiah, 9 and to shed light for all about the administration of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things. 10 This is so God’s multi-faceted wisdom may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens. 11 This is according to His eternal purpose accomplished in the Messiah, Jesus our Lord. 12 In Him we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.[a] 13 So then I ask you not to be discouraged over my afflictions on your behalf, for they are your glory.
Ephesians 3:7-13 (HCSB)
