“Go then and make disciples…” [Matthew 28:29 AMP]
Key #3—SECURITY—In Christ Alone—we sing the songs and our minds say ‘yes Lord’ but find no time for solitude or to wait. ” Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart…” [Psalm 27:14] We search for a place to ‘belong’ but forget to be hidden in Christ. “For you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God” [Colossians 2:3] A missionary mindset requires a focus that finds their world view from only one point of view—GOD’S. It is living from God’s perspective that the risk of the missionary increasingly fades and the security found in Christ puts iron in the soul and steel in the backbone!
A missionary ceases to strive for the things of this world—but uses all things freely for the betterment of others. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” [Luke 6:38]
A missionary carries an inward focus that cuts through the maze of worldly lures and pleasures. “That I might know Him…I press on toward the goal…” [Philippians 3:10a, 14a]
A missionary drives his stake deeply into the Word of the Living God and like Isaac sows his seed even in times of famine… and he prospers. [Genesis 26:1,12]
As a missionary when everything around you is shaking and you need a ‘safe place’ remember whose you are and find your security in the everlasting arms of Jesus.
