This prompt immediately brought to mind the phrase “search and rescue mission.” I think of how the mission of Jesus Christ was and still is to seek and save those who are lost in their sin.
For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.
But He is not the only one on this mission. He commissioned believers to follow Him and be on rescue team. So how is my life aligning with that mission to search out the lost and bring them to Him?
In the same way, let you light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
The task of evangelism has always been a struggle for me as an extremely shy, introverted type of person. I’m not the sort to go out knocking on doors and striking up conversation with complete strangers. But I know that it is still part of my calling as a Christian.
Right now, I believe my biggest mission field is actually right here at home with my own children. But that doesn’t make the job any easier. They see me at my worst, and it is sometimes hard to be Christ-like with little sinners who call me their mother. Still, it is my deep desire to lead them to Jesus. Thankfully, as I wrote in my post on prayer, God is ultimately in control of this whole rescue mission. May my life be a reflection of His light, and may I rely on His power to do what I cannot.
