This post from Michael Oh over at the Desiring God blog is rad. Read it. Live it with me.
"I believe that Jesus Christ is calling for well-trained, well-educated, godly, capable, wise, talented nobodies."
"My point is that missions is simply doing what the Lord has gifted and called you to do — where there are few or no Christians — so that those who cannot be saved without believing in the gospel would hear the life-giving good news of Jesus through you.
It’s choosing to forsake the comforts and glory of the American dream to live in an African jungle, or any foreign land, and speaking in a foreign tongue, choosing to be slightly uncomfortable and really need God so that he might have have the glory he is worthy to receive."
