He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

You Were Made For This

LOVED this except from John Piper on global missions. So blessed that the Lord has raised up an AMERICAN PASTOR with a GLOBAL VISION and HEART. That vision is NOT because he was a world traveler – but because of reading the WORD of GOD. Many can dismiss their lack of global vision to statements like, “Well, this is all I know.” They only know their city, their life. But what about their BIBLES?

Enough of that… here’s the quote from Piper -

“Everyone of you who confesses Jesus as Lord of the universe signs up for a significance beyond anything you ever dreamed….

I mean businessmen, homemakers, students. To belong to Jesus is to embrace nations with Him that He will one day rule entirely. Your heart was made for this. You heart was made to embrace the global dimension of missional living. If you don’t have a global heart if you’re not getting your arms around the nations, the unreached nations, people of the world. There will be a mild or serious sickness in your soul because your soul was made to do this.

Many people don’t know what’s wrong with their souls. And what’s wrong with their souls is that they have shrunk to the level of their concerns. And they’re not concerned about the nation.

When you pray hallowed by they name; thy kingdom come that’s meant to take your heart and make it as big as history and as large as the globe – and that’s a healthy heart.

And a heart coming down that just terminates on your city is a heart getting sick. You were made for this.”

- Michael Oh, missionary in Japan
