On the way.

Mission is not a trip. Mission is not an organization. It doesn't just happen in another country. Mission happens whenever, wherever you are. You are walking coordinates - on mission every single day. The mission Jesus left was for ordinary people, empowered by God’s Spirit, doing what Jesus did, together, wherever they were. As followers of Jesus, we are commissioned to share the gospel “to the ends of the earth.” We are also called to engage with those right in front of us - our co-workers, neighbors, family, and friends - to reflect the character of Jesus in our everyday life. 

 

If we are honest, many of us are simply too busy to be “on mission.” We have so many other things in our lives that sharing our faith is just not a priority. We may drive past, walk by, or scroll through opportunities each day. When we look at the life of Jesus, he was always “on mission”. Much of his ministry was by simply responding to people or situations He ran into each day. Join us as we look at Acts 3 and learn what it means to be “on mission” as we are on the way.
