Biblical Basis for Missions – The Mandate of Missions

Biblical Basis for Missions – The Mandate of Missions
Bible Audio Blog

This week we conclude the series of messages on #missions.   What is a #mandate and does it make a difference from where it comes?  A mandate is a command from someone in power.  In America, a political mandate comes from the people as they have the power to elect.  But, in a monarchy the command comes from the ruler.  As a follower of Jesus Christ, we must follow His commandments.  When Jesus said the fields are ripe with harvest, what did He mean?  What happens to a field that doesn’t get harvested?  It is sometimes very telling to hear the last words of famous people.  What were Christ’s last words before ascending to Heaven?  Would the lost in Hell beg us to go and be missionaries to their families?  According to the Bible, they would.  Who else is urging us to spread the good news of the Gospel?  Will you answer the call?

Some of our #leaders and #rulers today do not want to be seen with common folk unless it is for a #photo-op.  Compare that with the #Creator of the Universe who sees us, hears us, and through His Son, Jesus Christ touches us.  Seeing, hearing, and touching are the means of missions still to this day.  Can we see, hear, and touch Christ?  How about others?  From what perspective should we see the world?  What would happen if we could see the world through eyes of faith, hope, and love?  As we attempt to listen, what is it we should hear?  Ironically, Brother Tommy mentions a prediction about the state of missions in the year 2000 (this was in 1987) that never came to pass mainly because of the proliferation of the internet, which is how you’re receiving this now.  But, the internet can’t replace physical contact with the unsaved.  Are you making contact with those that need a savior?
