We Are Missionaries, #97

97, 10-7, SHOW  NOTES & COPYRIGHTS,  (Scheduled 3/30/2023) 

Today we will be discussion the call to missions in our lives.  We are called to spread the gospel to the nations.

THE MISSIONARY’S MISSION (Living In God’s Rhyme, pg. 65)

They leave the comfort of home

Where they were raised and grown,

Where seeds of faith were sown,

By those who gave them a home.

With the love for those,

These that God chose

Have a yearning to share

The love of God’s care.

Traveling across continents and seas

To spread his word and plant the seeds,

Prayerfully hoping that their good deeds

Will show more how God’s grace does please.

Where language is a barrier 

His word speaks to all,

No matter the carrier,

More will hear your call.

More will hear your call

Because they, many of them,

Love you and those in need

Of hearing a word, 

Of sharing a good deed.

It is God’s love that leads the missionary.

It is his call that sends them forth,

That sets the missionary on a course.

He has set their hearts on fire

With a spirit full of desire

To help their sisters and brothers

In a way not done by others.

God will bless

Those who help

More who have less,

Those who reach,

Those who teach

The one or more

Who need help.

He will bless evermore.

Pray for those with a heart,

A desire to live apart 

From the comforts of a life,

To live with those in strife.

May their living,

May their giving,

Be the gift,

Give a lift

To the spirit

Of many more adrift,

Perhaps not knowing

That as more do hear it,

The words of works

More will share,

More will care

That it is God’s word

More will be sowing.

Reflection on The Missionary’s Mission

I got the idea for this poem on my way to work .  I had a few good lines that I fortunately remembered to write down when I got to work.  However, when I wrote it, I struggled.  I’m not sure what that means, if anything.  Maybe it was because I was writing about something I know little about.  But upon reflection during the day I realized that we are all called to be missionaries.  Where ever we are we are to share the good news of salvation.  At work, on the street, with friends, and especially at home.  And it all starts with our story.

HIS WORD  MAY IT LEAD US (Living In God’s Rhyme, pg. 63)

Matthew, Mark Luke and John,

Paul, Peter, Timothy and Jude,

Books and letters written 

To show us the way to God’s love,

The love of his sacrifice,

The love of his grace,

The love he has for us,

The human race.

Jesus said,


Be baptized

And spread the Gospel.

We should not only pray,

Pray every day,

For those who have not heard

His mighty saving word.

We should speak

So that we reach

Those souls we know

Of the gift we have received

So they will not be deceived.

We need to shout

To the world about

That Jesus saves,

He is what God gave

So the end will be better,

So it will not be bitter.

After Thoughts

As believers we can meet in clusters

So that faith and desire we can muster

That as we leave the room

We do not have a sense of doom

But the faith to share,

Share that we care,

That others hear

What we hold dear

To our hearts

So they may start

To see what they can be

That when with Jesus

They will be free.


A SOLDIER FOR THE LORD (Living In God’s Rhyme, pg. 191)

There is more than the battle to be won

There is more that we are here for.

If we are to follow God’s Son

We do not fight as if it’s a war.

No, our mission is to share his love.

If we love God, we are commanded to love others.

Maybe the battle rages within us.

If we are one with Jesus,

The battle has been won.

We are raised with his Son.

If God is in us, his love we must share.

Through our sharing we show we care,

Not just for others, but for the Father

Who loves us in spite of ourselves.

We must show the love in our heart,

Love that is for all to see.

As the sun rises our days start.

Is love what our day will be?

Love will overcome hate.

If we do not show His love,

What will be the fate

Of those we overlook?

A soldier, marching forward,

Sharing God’s loving word,

Showing his saving grace

To a stranger’s face.

If we are to stand, 

We must follow his command.

Discussion:  A few readings for the Bible

Matthew 24:14 

And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Matthew 28:19-20 ESV 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


Mark 13:10 ESV 

And the gospel must first be proclaimed to all nations

Matthew 9:37-38 ESV 

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

As we come to the end of today’s podcast, let us pray.

Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in prayer as we end today’s podcast.  Dave and I thank You for leading us through the day and into tomorrow.  We thank You for all you have led us to and through.

We pray for our listeners and viewers; for their needs, healing and the salvation of those who have not yet accepted the gift of Your grace by faith. 

We pray, Lord, for this world in which we live.  Father, as Christians lead us to proclaiming the gospel where ever we are.  May we do so in a loving  way.  Lead us to the truth of the days we are living in.  

Dear Lord, prepare us and our listeners and viewers for the coming week.  We pray that it is You we live for and You who leads us.  As we walk with you  this week, may it be Your hand clasped around our hand so we may feel the grasp of Your love.

And this week may we remember the words from 2 Corinthians, 12:9; 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, 

my power is perfect in weakness.”

At the beginning and at the end

And every moment in between,

May our strength be for His strength

So His perfection may be seen.

(from God Still Rhymes, Concluding Prayer)

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.

Amen                                                                                                                                           (2/26/23)
