Have you ever seen yourself as a missionary? If you haven’t then either you don’t understand your identity or you have not understood why you are here. A missionary is someone with a mission. On earth, Christians are supposed to live like a missionary who know that they are sent for a mission. We are love’s missionaries. You should come to the realization that He sent you.
To understand who a missionary is, let us take a negative example. There are negative missionaries. Devils are missionaries and people who walk under them are missionaries. Why? They have a mission to steal, kill and destroy.
Why are we missionaries? Because He gave His words and sent us. Mathew 5v14; “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. “Do you qualify this scripture to be a religious statement or to be member of a church? You give sight to the world. You enable the world to see who they are, what they can become etc. The Father Yahweh, the creator of the heaven and the earth is light because the scripture tells us in the book of James that He is the Father of lights (James 1v17). He created light and made us to be light. So, we are “light” family,
The darkness of the world gave you the mission of light. We don’t make light in light. We make light in darkness. God didn’t say you are the light of your family or church but He said you are the light of the world. It means you are obliged to love. People who seem to be unlovable and repeatedly hurt the purpose of God and blindly speak against the things of God, you are obliged to love them.
This is the first level where He says “you are the light of the world”. Anything in your society that is not the will of God is represented by darkness. Darkness is everything that steals kills and destroys; darkness is everything that takes away the purpose of God from people and it could be in educational system political system, entertainment industry etc. And He says you are the light of the world. You are love’s missionary.
Obadiah 1v21; “And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau” This pluralized form “saviours” denotes a community, a nation. This is not Jesus Christ. It refers to offerings of Christ who are the result of the redemption. We are the prophetic saviours. When a saviour doesn’t know that he is saviour, his identity is misplaced. The book of Ecclesiastes says in 10v7; “I have seen servants on horses, While princes walk on the ground like servants.”.What a terrible misplaced identity? When you don’t know you are a saviour, you become a problem to all.
In this problematic situation, outbreak of COVID-19, who do we need? We do not need problematic people. We need solutionist. You carry the solution.
Mark 16v17-18; “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” The world needs such people because the world is tormented by demons. Live the life of a saviour.
You are love’s missionary and you carry this love. When you pray for the sick or for the people who hurt you, that is love of God. When love’s missionaries understand their identity, it sings a song for the dying world and many get liberated. The life that we get from our Lord Jesus Christ is indispensable, indestructible of God. Apostle Paul was bitten by a venomous snake but nothing happened to him.
John 12v14; “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” So, do not be inspired by your fears. Be inspired by His commission.
