What does it mean to go on a mission trip? The reality of this idea hit me in the middle of the introduction of a church service in Philly. I mean yes obviously we are serving people. But is it that manageable of a thought process to absorb.? Well i am here to tell you its not. In the service that we are exemplifying upon others and the community around us there is we are practicing good stewardship, caring for others, branching out to others, engrossing our lives in ethnic groups that quiet frankly we never would be in if it wasn't God's will and most of being disciples spreading the gospel or the good news to people. See you need to get this we as Christ Followers are supposed to be put in uncomfortable situations so we can overcome through God and grow in him. If we were not tested then we would not know where we stood, not that it matters but we as humans need growth and foundation upon which we grow from.
That being said every act of kindness, wickedness, love, hate, lust, innocence. Every tiny little thing matters. IT MATTERS if you walk passed the girl crying and you don't say a word because you think its not your business. IT MATTERS when a middle-schooler from your youth group is hurting and you go and talk to them telling them words of encouragement reaching out to them making sure they know they are loved. IT MATTERS WHEN THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU THINKS ALL HOPE IS LOST AND YOU TELL THEM THAT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST WE WILL BE SET FREE AND THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
Get on your knees and repent, confess your sins be convicted by the holy spirit, IT MATTERS.
