I have been reading up on mission lately, and it is refreshing yet convicting to reaffirm how loving the living God is. I have been looking at the Old Testament and how even in the begining God was a missional God. Man was created to be in reationship with God. When man fe, God had to deal with Sin as He is holy, but he still cared and provided the needs of Adam and Eve.
Through Abraham all the the peoples of the world would be blessed (Gen 22:18).
The Great Commission in Matthew then backs up this bibical theme”Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Need I say more?
