The Great Commandment and the Great Commission have always been the cornerstones of mission. God is described as a missional God as He declares His intent to show the world His love from the corners of the Bible beginning with Genesis and ending in Revelation.
We on the other hand are a different story. We need some training. We need to recognize the value of people from other cultures. We need to know how God has gifted them and what they bring to the table. We need to work together in order to accomplish what God want us to do for His Church around the world.
So it is that we have determined that relationships and servanthood are paramount – probably the two things that need time more than anything else. Time to build and time to show humility toward each other and to learn from each other.
What could God do with that and with our prayers for labourers is amazing.
