What is mission?
Often in The Salvation Army we have been dependent on mission being carried out by “evangelism specialists”, or by a clever program run by people who are appear to be especially gifted to share faith. We have sometimes been taught that only a select few from every corps are gifted enough to be missionaries. The idea that only a select few can do mission is not biblical and is perhaps the reason we don’t experience the same reality or outcomes as the New Testament disciples.
Jesus sends and appoints 72 unknown, vulnerable, every day and ordinary disciples on a mission. The missional outcome is amazing and Jesus shares the joy with the disciples. Download the sermon outline here.
