30 Days to Understanding the Bible – The Missions Era
Missions. For many people, the word missions bring up images of deep woods in some remote place halfway around the world. The people who inhabit those remote areas don’t usually speak the same language or enjoy some of the same comforts of home. Still, for others, it brings up memories of news stories telling of tragic deaths or imprisonment of missionaries and pastors.
Only those who feel called to travel to remote areas, go willingly, under the direction of the Lord, anticipating, and praying they will meet lost people in those remote villages who will give their life to Christ. For them, it is an honor to serve the Lord in this way.
Many churches and individuals around the work support missions work through several avenues.
I have listened to several missionaries talk about their experiences, and I don’t think there has ever been a time where missionaries have regretted their commitment. If anything, they are excited to get back to the work of sharing the gospel – the good news.
Missionaries exhibit such bravery, but I believe they rely on a more significant amount of faith within.
