The Meaning of Missional

Much conversation today in evangelical circles revolves around what it means to be missional. Many books, articles, sermons, and ministries all subscribe to misssional thinking. Being missional means the believer will be intentional about living for Jesus as a missionary to his/her friends, family, and sphere of influence. Jesus came on a mission to seek and save the lost, and said in John 10:16And(T) I have other sheep that are not of this fold.(U) I must bring them also, and(V) they will listen to my voice. So there will be(W) one flock,(X) one shepherd.” Jesus is not content to sit on His hands while others have not yet heard the message He gave the Church- which is the Gospel. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, which means all people through His shed blood and resurrection can come to Him. Christ does not desire that any would perish but that all would come to everlasting life. The mission of Jesus is to offer to sinful man salvation. The Great Commission is not the “great suggestion”. Living for Jesus means understanding the mission that Jesus gave His disciples. To be a disciple means to be one who is learning from the Master. The greatest of the commissions Jesus gave believers is in Matthew 28:16-20. Jesus also gave other “great Commissions” in Mark 16:14-18, Luke 24:36-49, John 20:19-23 and Acts...
