Speaker: Todd Ahrend Series: Standalone Messages
Speaker: Todd Ahrend - What verses come to mind when you think of the word, “missions”? Most of us are hard pressed to name more than the Great Commission. For years our church culture has singled out this passage to be the theme of our missions conferences and the motivation for those who go. But, the Bible has a lot more to say on this subject than just the Great Commission. We need to understand the concept of a Biblical basis for missions. Maybe you’re saying, “The Biblical basis, is there one?” YES! And not only that, but missions permeates every book of the Bible. It is in fact the theme of the Bible. If you don’t believe that all 66 books can be reduced to one theme, keep reading. You will see that missions is not your pastor’s idea, or your campus minister’s idea, or even your idea…it is God’s. Since creation, God has been interested in redeeming all peoples to Himself. As Christians, it is vital that we see the world as He sees it.
