Biblical Basis for Missions – The Motive of Missions

Bible Audio Blog

What #motivates you in #life?  What should be our motive to be missionaries? Is the purpose of the Gospel to make us comfortable, or should it propel us to inform others?  At the core of Jesus’ sacrifice is love, God’s love for all of mankind.  Therefor, shouldn’t our motive to share the Gospel with those around us be love.  The word, love, gets thrown around a lot.  But, what kind of love should we have for our fellow man?  How much does the God of the Universe care about us?  In light of God’s sacrifice of His only Son, what can we do to show our allegiance?  Do you think the prodigal son felt loved when his father welcomed him back?  And what are the chances that same son told his friends and neighbors about his father’s love?

It’s All About Jesus

THE LIVING GOD REWARDER

from Barbara's Bible

Do you #cheer when someone is the #recipient of a #prize given by the #rewarder on a game show? I know I am always happy for a #winner. Life gives us many opportunities to make choices which can lead to losses or gains both now and in the future. God’s word in the Bible provides wisdom and guidance for victorious living if we read it and heed it. “It maybe well with you…doing the will of God from your heart knowing that whatsoever good thing you do, you shall receive of the Lord.” Eph.6 “Let no man beguile you of your reward” Col.2:18 Most game shows have trick questions or unknown risks to choose between and so do we as we make choices moment to moment. Do you make the right call? “Call and the Lord shall answer ….and shall guide you continually.” ..”The morning shall come…and the glory of the LORD SHALL BE YOUR REWARDER….the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the path to dwell” Isaiah 58:8-12 Just as there are winners and losers on the game shows , Colossians 3:23-25 gives us fore knowledge “Know that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of inheritance for serving the Lord Jesus Christ but the one who does wrong shall receive the wrong which he has done and there is no respecter of persons.” Good news – God has made a way for us to be a winner by choosing life through His Son. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for the one who comes to God must believe that He is and that He THE LIVING GOD IS A REWARDER of them that diligently seek Him.” Hebrews11:6 Now that is something to cheer about!!!

Biblical Basis for Missions – The Christ

Bible Audio Blog

Missions without #Jesus Christ is just #SocialWork.  Social work may be well intentioned, but at best it is only a temporary fix to an infinite problem.  The #World waited a long time for the #Savior.  Why do we need a savior?  Did He have to be both God and man?  Is there any more to the mission message than Jesus?  What lessons did Christ teach us about God?  Jesus taught us about the worth of each individual as well as our inherited propensity to sin and our need to be saved from it.  He also talked a lot about the Kingdom of God.  Are there boundaries to this kingdom?  Was the Savior’s mission to serve or to be served?  Jesus Christ is our example, so what then should our mission be?

The Master Gardener

THE LIVING GOD WEPT

from Barbara's Bible

Do you tear up easily? Some people say, “I never shed a tear”. Well I am not one that can say that instead I am the one saying, “I will cry with you”. You may have heard it said, “Keep a stiff upper lip”. Yes, there are times we all have to control our empathy and sorrow. Jesus Christ shed tears here on earth in the death of Mary’s brother. When Mary saw Jesus she said, “If you had been here my brother would not have died. Jesus saw her weeping. He asked where they had laid him. They said, ‘Lord come and see’ JESUS WEPT With great compassion and power Jesus said. “Take away the stone from the place where the dead was laid and He spoke with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth and he that was dead came forth Then many who came with Mary and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on Him” Jesus Christ loves us. I do not know the many tears He has shed for us over our sins, but I pray that you will pray Job 16:20 with me “My friends scorn me, but my eye pours out tears unto God” for my friends, loved ones, and myself. “Rejoice with them that rejoice, and weep with them that weep” Rom.12:15 Our time here on earth is spent with many changes and the Bible says, “ A time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and time to dance; time to cast away and a time to gather; time to get and a time to lose; time to keep and time to cast away….He has made all things beautiful in its time” Ecc.3:4-11 NOW is the Time to come to Jesus, cast your cares, tears, joys upon Him for He endured the cross for our sins and is coming back to have joyous fellowship with His beloved. Keep looking up. Matt,13:41-43 Jesus said, “The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend and them which do wrong and cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. The righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear let him hear.”
