Just before Jesus ascended into heaven, he said to his disciples,
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8, NIV).
Jesus was asking people to represent Him – in their hometown and in far away lands. Our response to that calling is to support the efforts of long-term global partners and to encourage people in our congregation to engage in short-term, missional journeys around the globe.
At CCC, we believe that each Christ follower has been called to engage in God’s Mission in some way. There is no age limit in the invitation to follow Jesus. There is no restriction on who can go to proclaim the good news through their presence, actions and words.
What is God’s invitation to you regarding missions? How are you called to serve in His kingdom? If you are not called to go yourself, how can you support someone who has been called?
God might be calling you to pray. God might lead you to short-term service. God might call you to a local project that addresses a global need.
We’re praying for you to hear God’s calling and follow it wherever it might lead.
