ARE YOU A MISSIONARY?

Someone once said, "We are either a missionary or a mission field, depending on whether or not we are preaching the gospel." The term 'missionary'is not found in the bible. It has been coined to describe those who preaches the gospel in foreign countries.

The gospel the Apostle Paul himself received and preached - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4)." is easily preached by first asking another if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.). When uttered to others in person with our mouth it saves every one who believes (Please see SAVED on www.preach-the-gospel.org for a definition of 'saved').

By preaching the gospel to foreigners in our own country and teaching them to preach the gospel (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20) they will in turn preach it to their own nation. In so doing we turn the world right-side up (See WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW on www.preach-the-gospel.org) and best of all, when the gospel has been preached to every person in every nation Christ will return and take us to be with him forever (Mk 16.15, Mt 24.14 & 30-31, & 1 Thes 4.13-18).

As you go into the world ask others if they have heard the good news and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4)." Then teach them who believe to preach the gospel as well (Mt 28.20). Be a missionary, not a mission field.
