The Mission Field

You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses …to the ends of the earth (Acts1:8)

In the past month I have been in three different churches in two different states and the message has been the same encouragement. Our ministry is right where we are.

I once read of a church that had the following sign above the exit—“You are now entering the mission field.” What a great reminder that we do not need to go to Belize or Haiti to serve as a missionary, but to be a witness for Jesus Christ wherever God puts us. And unless we’re resisting His prompting, He has us right where He wants us.
There are so many people in our path everyday, and they all need Jesus. Like one pastor said, “So, Church, break out of the huddle, and let’s head out into the world.”
