Have you ever wondered whether God was actually calling you to mission work? And does He call every christian to be a missionary? If you look to the bible, I think the answer is a resounding yes! He may be calling you to serve in another country, or He may be calling you to serve in your own backyard, but the word of God does say that we are to go out into the world, wherever that is, and share the love of Jesus with everyone we meet. Here are 5 inspiring bible verses that confirm God is calling all of us to mission work:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’”
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
1 Chronicles 16:24
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
