Memorial Day is set aside in our nation’s calendar to remember those who gave their lives to fight our nation’s military battles. While I acknowledge the debt of gratitude we owe to those who fought for our political freedom, the occasion of Memorial Day also brought to my mind those who have given their lives in spiritual warfare – missions in particular. The New Testament tells of the earliest Christian martyrs. There have also been many throughout church history who have died in their quest to bring the liberating gospel of God’s kingdom to the world.

Today we will look at the Word of God to answer the questions:

  1. Why should we send missionaries?
  2. Who should be involved in missions?
  3. What is the work of missions?
