Praying for Our Missionaries

Posted onMarch 11, 2018 | 0 comments

When you read the letters in the Bible that were written by the Apostle Paul you discover that he was a man who was convinced of the importance of prayer. He prayed for people on a regular basis and told them what he was asking God to do in their lives. He also wanted people to pray for him. This is encouraging. Paul, the great apostle and missionary, did not consider himself above the need of having others pray for him. And Paul was specific about what he wanted people to pray. Paul’s prayer requests can give us some guidance as to how to pray for the missionaries that we support at Wake Chapel Church. Listen to some of Paul’s prayer requests:...Keep Reading

“Love...The Foundation of Missions”

Posted onMarch 14, 2017 | by: Ross Marion | 0 comments

“Mission” according to the Oxford English Dictionary means “the action or act of sending.” Since its inception in the New Testament, the church has always sent missionaries to preach the good news about Jesus Christ. That message is what sets all missionary efforts apart from humanitarian enterprises. The needs of mankind are legion. Hunger. Poverty. Sickness. The list is without end. Yet man’s greatest, deepest, and most fundamental need is the matter of sin. Men, women, boys, and girls are sinners. The Bible says so. If every need of humankind was fully satisfied except sin, mankind would still be miserable. Sin is man’s ultimate dilemma....Keep Reading

Where Did It Begin and What Is It All About?

Christian missions find their origin in the heart of God. More than once the Bible affirms the truth that God sent His Son into the world. In John 3, we find those familiar and beloved words "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son..." The great Apostle Paul said, "But when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son... .”...Keep Reading

A Revival of Mission

Posted onFebruary 23, 2014 | by: Ross Marion | 0 comments

One result of our March Missions Emphasis Month will, I trust, be a revival of our mission. A waning sense of urgency, a relaxed attitude and a feeling that "we are doing ok" come all too easily. The fresh winds of the Great Commission are a needed prescription. At the end of Matthew's Gospel, Jesus told us to go into all the world winning, baptizing, teaching and making disciples of all nations. At the beginning of Acts, He told His followers, "Ye shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witness to Me...To the ends of the earth."...Keep Reading
