Why missionaries to America?…Jesus IS the source of joy!

by Joseph Parker

I think of this often.

What is, ultimately, our mission? And who’s mission is it?

The great commission tells us to GO, and MAKE disciples of all nations…btw, this includes America.

A disciple is a student, a learner, someone growing in something they desire to know or believe.

In this context, as Christians, we desire to make disciples of Jesus Christ, as we ourselves are. And this is what KidTrek is doing, through the Deuteronomy 6 commandment to walk with our kids through life.

WHY? Because JESUS is the source of our joy…our strength…our hope!

And our kids, growing up in America, must know this! They must grow into adults who are confident in the joy, peace, hope they have in Jesus.

To do this, we must be willing to sacrifice our leisure, our comforts and our luxuries in life.

We must be willing to GO!

How are you doing this in your community, your job, your school, your church?

I love this explanation of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ from Mark Driscoll…you will need a little over 9 minutes to watch the whole thing, but it is well worth it.

THIS is why America NEEDS missionaries!
