Christ, Life, Ministry

Legacy

GALogo

 

Last night I was reminded of where I come from.

I had the unexpected opportunity to attend a meeting and catch a glimpse of where Louisiana Baptists, specifically the Women’s Ministries, are focusing on for the future. Their focus is to teach missions. This is nothing new for the WMU. They have been teaching little girls to live out the great commission since 1888. I am a part of that legacy.  I have been fortunate enough to learn from wonderful women.

I was reminded that we are supposed to live “missions”.  All Christians are called to serve. When we are talking to our boys, the big question is always “Are you showing love?” That’s really what missions is all about, Love. Showing the Father’s love to hurting people. Hurting people are everywhere: China, Montana, Louisiana, the Military, your church, and your home. Love them because God sent his Son to die for them.

My prayer is that as I teach a new generation of G.A’s about missions I can continue this legacy.

GA Pledge: “As a GA, I will do my best to live a missions lifestyle that honors God by learning about missions, praying for missions, giving to missions, doing missions, and participating in the work of the church.”

“The Lord has shown you what is good. He has told you what he requires of you. You must treat people fairly. You must love others faithfully. And you must be very careful to live the way your God wants you to” (Micah 6:8 NIrV).
