Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

Our “being in Christ” leads to our “Christ-like doing.”

We do what we do because of what we believe he has done.

We love because we are loved by him first.

We serve because we were served by Jesus first.

We are on mission, not mainly so that God will be pleased with us, but because he has already sent the Son on mission to make us decisively pleasing to the Father.

He is ultimately pleased with us because of Jesus, who loved, served, and was sent to die in our place. Everything we do comes out of what we believe about God and his work. This reality doesn’t negate good works or prevent missional living and keep us from desiring to please our Father. It actually produces good works and informs and leads into missional living.
