Missionary Possible

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you..." (Matthew 28:19-20)

I used to take little notice of the above great commission given by Jesus before His Ascension because I thought it was meant more for priests and missionaries...

Moreover, the task seemed daunting: How is it possible to convince people now given the recent controversies (Da Vinci Code, Gospel of Judas), the multitude of religions and the pervasiveness & popularity of new-age beliefs?

But the Lord gently reminded me that He needs only willing instruments:

"But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict."
(Luke 21:14-15)

We need only be open to the Holy Spirit and to be aware of our mission to build His Kingdom.

After being a Christian for more than 30 years, I have not converted a single person yet. Nevertheless, I will continue my mission of being a witness to Christ wherever and whenever I can (at home/work/church and through blogging) knowing that I may be used to sow seeds of faith, which I may never see fruition.
