And So God Created the Missionary

Kingdom values and Kingdom are difficult to harmonize. The nine beatitudes  in Matthew 5 contain concepts that literally turn life upside down.

And usually people don't like change.

Jesus ended this list with an amazing declaration: "Blessed are people when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven."

Well, we didn't invent this idea. God did.

He wants people to go out boldly and, even when persecuted, continue being his "sent out ones" (John 20:21 Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."

That's why God Created the Missionary. This is an amazing video - well worth your time. Loren Cunningham began the movement called Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and visited every country in the world, one of the few to have ever done this.
