Intro to Missions. Second year. And a quote from William Carey.
Do I want to be a missionary? I mean, I dedicated my life to the Lord last year when we had the Missions Conference.. but do I really want to become a missionary? When this course started I wasn't sure at all. I mean, of course I would like to go whereever God leads me, but I have my own personal goals, like getting married and have a family.
I think there are more people who are more suited to be a missionary, but today we were talking about those nations who basically don't have the chance at all to hear the Gospel. What will happen to them when they die?
Sadly, they are going to hell. It isn't an excuse that they didn't hear the message. I knew this before, but this time it really touched my heart.
God really doesn't need me for this "job", and if we don't tell the Good News, the rocks will cry it out.. but if a rock can do it, wouldn't it be better, if I'd do it?
Can I say that I don't wanna go just because I'm afraid of people and my future? This can only shows how much I lack of faith and how much more I need to trust God.
In 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 it is written Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
