Video: Mission myth-busting #6 – I have already done a mission trip

Have you been on a short term mission trip overseas? Perhaps before you went, you thought you’d be saving the world? Let’s be honest. It was most likely an experience mostly for you: faith building and stretching, learning new things, spending time in another culture. Which is all great, but there’s so much more to explore.⠀

Jesus did walk from village to village, performing many signs and miracles. That’s what people knew him for, that’s why they flocked to him. But it was his disciples who were able to articulate that Jesus was the Messiah (Mark 8:26-28; Luke 9:18-21). Jesus’ greatest ministry impact was on the disciples who journeyed with him for three years, eating with him, praying with him, listening to him. Relational ministry and mission takes time. ⠀

Who are you sharing the joys and messes of life with? Who are you allowing to share their life with you? ⠀

Short-term trips are often just the beginning of a mission journey. How are you living a missional life where you are? How can you take a next step in God’s mission?⠀
