Be a Missionary day 5

Shawn sent me a text late last night. The mission team worked in a remote village up in the mountains yesterday, doing VBS and other ministry. Shawn said it was one of the most beautiful places he had ever walked. 5 people accepted Christ. Please continue praying for the team as they are working today.

Day 5

Glory is often found in small places. A cup of cold water, a kiss for a hurt child, a meal shared with a friend. Today you may find a way to share tiny glimpses of God’s love with others. Sometimes we feel insignificant because we are not making big changes in the world around us. Be encouraged that even a small gesture can have large kingdom impact.

Matthew 13:31-32, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants and grows into a tree where birds can come and find shelter in its branches.”

Whatever God shows you to do today, no matter how small or how insignificant it may seem, He is using it for kingdom purposes. Every single time that you share God’s love on this trip, no matter how big or how small it may seem, you are planting a seed. Some of the seeds you plant will have results you can not even fathom.

God needs gardeners - people who are willing to plant the seeds of the Good News, water them with love, pull up the weeds of sin, and harvest the crops. Ask God to use you as His gardener today.
