Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

Even as we start a missional community, the question remains…”Do we see ourselves as missionaries?” It’s a good question, clouded by our traditional understanding of mission work in far off lands and our inability to see mission in everyday life. But we can’t get around the fact that missionaries is what we are.

What the church in America must do is make an effort to live on mission daily while each believer changes the way we view ourselves. We must begin to see ourselves as missionaries commissioned by God to share the gospel with our lips and lives in the homes, communities, jobs, and schools He has placed us in. If we begin to see our cities through the lens of a missionary sent by God, we will begin to have a compassion on those around us who do not know Christ.

(From D.A. Horton — “The Mission Field of the United States“)
