We often think that to be in mission, to feed the hungry, care for the poor and unfortunate, to reach out to the brokenhearted and offer hope to the hopeless is in large part a responsibility in response to what God has done for us. And it is…sort of.
But there is more to mission than our efforts at physical work. We are in mission to reveal God’s nature to love, accept, forgive, give blessings, correct, bring healing, and to do all of that and more with compassion.
Successful mission is not simply getting a job done…successful mission is reflecting the image of God.
