For the Joy Set Before Us: Insights into the Missionary Journey
To become a missionary is to say that your life belongs to the Lord. You let Him do what He wishes because it is not your life anymore, but His. This is not a legalistic command; it is a joyful, vibrant relationship. It produces a burning fire within you to proclaim the Gospel and honor the lover of your soul. This fire cannot be conjured up by trying hard enough, by being sacrificial enough, and so on. This is the fire of God that comes from being filled with the Holy Spirit.
