Trueblood: what the Church is

Saturday, April 18, 2020
    And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
    —Mark 13:10 (NIV)
    All of the early Christians were missionaries. They did not leave the evangelistic task either to professional evangelists or to pastors to whom they paid salaries, for these did not exist... The early Church did not have a missionary arm; it was a missionary movement.
    ... Elton Trueblood (1900-1994), The Incendiary Fellowship, New York: Harper, 1967, p. 112 (see the book)
    See also Mark 13:10; Matt. 28:18-20; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 13:47
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me a missionary wherever You place me.
