The Missionary’s Goal

My Utmost His Highest

"He . . . said to them, ’Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem . . . ’" (Luke 18:31)

In our natural life our ambitions change as we grow, but in the Christian life the goal is given at the very beginning, and the beginning and the end are exactly the same, namely, our Lord Himself. We start with Christ and we end with Him —”. . . till we all come . . . to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ . . .” (Ephesians 4:13), not simply to our own idea of what the Christian life should be. The goal of the missionary [the Christian who responds to God's command to make disciples] is to do God’s will, not to be useful or to win the lost. A missionary is useful and he does win the lost, but that is not his goal. His goal is to do the will of his Lord. (read more) (purchase)
