We’re all in the Missionary business, but we just don’t realize it, or the resulting impact we might be having. Yeah, you’re right… you didn’t sign up for it, nor did I…at least, not realizing that I did.
So… I’m a missionary? We are, or should be, on a mission…right? I KNOW that I’ve been on a mission all of my adult life; I know that I’ve been in missionary work all of my adult life, especially in the last 5 years. I didn’t do it on purpose ….at least…initially, nor did I do it intentionally, until I realized the impact of my mission.
When we, as hard working, dedicated, committed business people, go about our life’s work, then, in order to be successful… we actually are doing missionary work, and don’t realize it. We must be on a MISSION to be successful.
If we were to take our spiritual life as serious as our career-life…. then we would be successful missionaries, as well, not to mention….and likely…we would be SAINTS. Our mission would be the successful venture of bringing someone to Christ; be it only one, or 1000 and one.
It is my belief… rather we are in business… as a career goal, or in business to serve Christ… we can successfully blend the two missions into one. We are told in Mark 16:15-16 – And He said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
So then, for many…a successful career, can be preparatory to becoming a successful missionary – as in both… there will people who will either follow a successful man in his business career, or they follow you in your missionary work…of saving souls…or possibly even… both. Either way, you are on a Mission…rather you realize it…or not.
