Have you ever wondered why missions & evangelism & discipleship should be a priority in each of our lives?
Here is a neat 3 point outline that will help you remember why missions (and giving to missions) is so important.
- The Character of God – God is Holy – sin is offensive and disgusting to Him. BUT (you gotta love the “BUT”) He is also gracious and forgiving. “But Thou art a God of forgiveness, gracious, and compassionate, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness.” Nehemiah 9:17
- The Condition of Mankind – We are sinful. We are evil & wicked. We are separated from God. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
- The Commands of God – These are not suggestions! To not obey God’s commands is sin. “Proclaim good tidings (announce Good News) of His salvation from day to day. Tell of His glory (declare) among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.”
Psalm 96:2 – 5
Why did God do the things He did? As He declared to Pharaoh: But, indeed, for this cause I have allowed you to remain in order to show you My power, and in order to proclaim My name through all the earth.” Exodus 9:16
