January 28, 2018 - 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 - "Mission Motivation: His to Us, Then Ours to Others"
When we hear about mission work, we often think of bold evangelists trekking through the forest in South America or going village-to-village in the African wilderness. That's not the way the Bible describes mission work. First, consider the great pursuit that God has had to reach you. He has literally moved heaven and earth for you, so that you would know that death is not your demise and righteousness is yours. If he gave his Son for you... if this was the greatest quest of God for you, then it stands to reason that this should be our great endeavor in life; i.e. seeking out others. And it just so happens that the very love he showed to us is the very thing -- the only thing -- that can truly motivate us to reach the people around us.
