Kneeling down on the beach, we prayed and said farewell to one another. Then we went on board the ship, and they returned home. Acts 21:5-6
For those of us who aren't called to be missionaries but are instead called to "return home", I suggest the following questions:
"If the Apostle Paul made a seven-day stop in my town, would he be likely to find me faithfully advancing the Gospel with the rest of the disciples in my church?"
"Do I have a deep admiration for our church's missionaries?
"Can I really say that my heart is entwined with the burdens, joys, and concerns of the missionaries that my church supports?" Have I done anything that would convince them of my care for them?
Let the Gospel's advance on the frontline drive your oh-so-normal life at home.
