Being a ‘Missionary’ Doesn’t Always Mean Going Overseas; It Means Living a ‘Missional Lifestyle’ Wherever You Are

Is the idea of missions still relevant? We have asked this question before, but InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s guest speaker Sarah Breuel with International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) gives a strong yes.

“Jesus had no question of His identity. He knew who He was, and He knew He was sent. He never questioned that. His closeness to the Father was evident throughout His life, and that’s the model,” Breuel explains.

“To think that when Jesus says, ‘as the Father sent me, I am sending you.’ There’s so much weight because He was sent, and that we are sent. We get to be Jesus’ representatives.”

In other words, we get to be Jesus’ representatives to the world. However, living a life of missions does not always mean packing a bag and heading to a far off land. Instead, it means the privilege of drawing near to God, growing in His love, and sharing His heart with others.
