Mobile Mission Fields

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” Matthew 28:19.

When my grandmother was in the nursing home the final year of her life she never changed the theme of her life – go and make.  As long as I can remember every place she went became her mission field.  She didn’t wait on the sideline for some huge opportunity but took spiritual advantage of her daily walk inviting all into a personal relationship with God.  Even that last year as young CNAs would enter her room she would share the message of Christ with each one.  As those workers came in to mop the floor or change the sheets they walked onto her mission field with opportunity and privilege.  No one was deemed unworthy of this message.  My grandmother understood in her spiritual core that wherever she would go the goal was the same – offer the good news to ‘all nations’ – every one she met. 

‘In the Greek language go is an aorist participle, which means it takes on the mood of the command…It could more accurately be translated going.  In other words, the command to make disciples should be accomplished while believers are going about their business.’ Jonah – Navigating a Life Interrupted p. 105.  The ultimate example of a believer going about His business was when our precious Savior was hanging on the cross.  The criminal on the cross next to Him was hungry for the message.  Jesus, in all the pain and suffering He was going through, still made a disciple of God that day.  My grandmother as she laid there going from clarity to confusion still made daily disciples for God.  Evangelism is not something to do; it is a way to live’ p. 107.  I have always said that Grandmother’s life was her ministry. 

I was thinking about ways I could live today as a ‘go and make’ day.  When going to get my grandson off the bus, I could share a story of Jesus from the Bible.  When going to mail resources on grief to my friend whose son just died from a heroin overdose I could remind her of the unfailing love and sustaining grace of God.  When going to the grocery store, I could pattern patience with others as God has extended patience to me.  Wherever we are going today, we carry the possibilities of a harvest in our mission field.  Many times our lives are lived with an attitude of go and make excuses...go and make compromises... go and make your mark.

Oh Lord, let our days be filled with a 'go and make disciples' life.

I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours as

It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
made good content material as you did, the web will be much more
helpful than ever before.

First of all I would like to say terrific blog!
I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
