Hopeful: On Mission Devotions

Original post at http://tbolto.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/on-mission-devotions/

This blog by Scott Parrish gave me some good material as I prepare for Second Saturday Servants tomorrow.  We will be sharing a meal and Bible study with God’s Kidz in the Hood this Saturday.

On Mission Devotions is the place for Kudzu Life.  I liked his natural movement from Genesis 12:2-3 to John 20:21.

A section of Parrish’s blog:

For a long time people who followed God have been sent on incredible adventures. If you look over the Old Testament you’ll find it is a consistent pattern shared time and time again- Noah, Abraham, Jonah, the prophets, and others- show us that God’s ways are very, very different than our ways. If we follow God in our time and place then we are going to be a peculiar people. Jesus picks up on that long tradition of being sent as a missionary.

Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of man, was sent with a purpose. As followers of Christ, we too are sent with a purpose. That’s why you’ll sometimes read a devotional or hear a preacher speak of church folk and Christians as being a “sent people.” John 20:21 “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
