The Key to the Missionary’s Work

My Utmost His Highest

"Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ’All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations . . .’" (Matthew 28:18-19)

The key to the missionary’s work is the authority of Jesus Christ, not the needs of the lost. We are inclined to look on our Lord as one who assists us in our endeavors for God. Yet our Lord places Himself as the absolute sovereign and supreme Lord over His disciples. He does not say that the lost will never be saved if we don’t go — He simply says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations . . .” He says, “Go on the basis of the revealed truth of My sovereignty, teaching and preaching out of your living experience of Me.” . . . “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you . . .” (John 15:7 ) — that is the way to keep going. Where we are placed is then a matter of indifference to us, because God sovereignly engineers our goings. (read more) (purchase)
