Our Mission as Christians

Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.  May The Lord bless you and pour His grace upon you and your loved ones.

As Christians, The Lord has created us for a mission.  Jesus says, in John 17:18 (RSV), ''As Thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.''  Jesus also says in John 20:21 (NIV), ''As The Father has sent me, I am sending you.''

So, upon what mission is Jesus sending us into the world?  It is to share the good news with all the people of the world, not just those who are near to us, or those who are different from us, but ''to the ends of the earth.'' (Acts 1:8, NIV).

Now, there are many ways by which we may share the good news.  This is especially true today.  We may accomplish this task by word of mouth, through writings, or through an electronic means, such as the Internet.  Oral presentations and writings have been with us for thousands of years.  However, most recently, we have an enormous tool at our disposal that can truly reach ''the ends of the earth.''  The computer, through use of the Internet can accomplish wonders in this regard.

Whatever the media we are able to use, let us not forget the mission The Lord has charged each of us to do.  Once again, that is to spread the good news.  And in case we have forgotten, the good news is contained within The Bible.

Let us also remember, The Lord may have other missions for us in addition to the one mentioned here.  Should this come to pass, he will make us aware of these in His time and in a manner of His choosing.

May The Lord bless you and your loved ones.

Your humble servant in Christ.
