Are you familiar with the word missional? (Read This) In “The High Priestly Prayer” of Jesus in John 17, as He is praying for those who will believe Jesus prays, “O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me.” (John 17:25, ESV)
In this weekend’s message at West Bradenton, one of the applications we discovered is our responsibility to declare the missional nature of His Name.
We are not just to send missionaries or send mission teams (although both of these are vital and our responsibility), however we are sent as a part of His church – the bride of Christ. God sends His people as His ambassador to bring the hope of the resurrection every single day of our lives! It is to be our declaration that His Name is missional. It is the very reason God has given each of us a voice!
So the real question is how is the missional nature of God being heard in your voice?
