Why should we be involved in missions?

Matthew 28, 18-20;
Mark 16, 15;
John 20, 21;
Romans 10, 13-15;
Acts 13, 2-4.


It is a historical fact that nations without the Gospel have more poverty, crime, sickness, wrecked homes, illegitimate children, greed, corruption and wars than those who allow freedom for the Gospel to be preached.

Records show that in 6,000 years 14,530 wars have been fought.  This averages 2.6 wars per year.  It cost Caesar $.75 to kill one enemy soldier. It cost Napoleon $3,000.  In World War I we spent $21,000 for each enemy killed. In World War II it was $200,000.
Modern war is costing around $1,000,000 each.

Think of putting that amount of money into missions!

Our reason for missions:

1.     To fulfill the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28, 19-20).

    A. We have rather become more concerned about our buildings.
    B. We have rather become possessed with big numbers.
    C. We have rather become obsessed with our standing. (How many
                 Professionals do we have?).

2.    To share the compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 9, 36-38; 18, 10-14).

    A. We need to hear the cry from above. (‘Go to the house of Cornelius!’)
    B. We need to hear the cry from below. (‘Send someone to my brothers!’)
    C. We need to hear the cry from the field. (‘Come over to Macedonia!’)

3.    To glorify God by bringing people to the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3, 16; Acts 1, 8;
    Romans 10, 13-15).

    A. Getting children saved from their hopelessness and emptiness.
    B. Getting prisoners saved in their jails.
    C. Getting local people saved through visitation.
    D. Getting souls saved around the world through missions.

4.    To build up the body of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4, 12-16).

    A. The local church is the source of missionary personnel.
    B. The local church is the sanctuary of missionary prayer.
    C. The local church is the supplier of missionary provision.

James N. Spurgeon wrote:

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
