Lord, Send Me (A Missionary Reflection)

“We make a living by what we get… we make a life by what we give.” – Anonymous
They say that the missionary life is the “road less travelled”.  Can you ever imagine yourself as a child and say, “when I grow up I want to be a missionary”?  Maybe for a few… but not everyone would dream of the missionary life, but it is a life which everyone is called to.

“Many are called but few are chosen” –Mt 22:14.   Why is this so… a lot of people may be well-versed, skilled, talented, presentable, intelligent, but these are not the requirements which God needs to find in order to pour upon His missionary anointing.  Rather, it is every man’s heart which God looks into… a heart willing to die in order to live with God’s strength.
