Mission is the Basis for the Bible

Recently I had the privilege of teaching the first session of the Perspectives course in Yakima, Washington.

I love the emphasis in the first lesson that our God is a missionary God!
One of the quotes in the material for the first session is from Dr. Ralph Winter, founder of the US Center for World Mission:
While the Bible contains the basis for missions, it is more important to recognize that God’s mission is actually the basis for the Bible.- Dr. Ralph Winter
Consider the reality that the Bible is a unified story of God’s mission.

How amazing that we get the awesome privilege of joining God in His mission today.

Today’s Missional Challenge

Consider how you will join God in His ongoing mission this week. Focus on your part in making disciples who make disciples.

Also, if you’ve never taken the Perspectives course, I highly recommend it. Discover more at www.perspectives.org.
