I observe that mission work in Central and Eastern Europe and worldwide operates increasingly on the basis of secular business principles instead of theological principles, focusing more on outputs and end results instead of fruits growing in a hidden way,
Jesus words in John 20:21 have been significant in helping me develop a different missionary perspective – ” As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” I see now that the special call doesn’t matter, the place doesn’t matter, what does matter is the Jesus has sent me and I am as “sent” here as others are “sent” there. Jesus told his early disciples to be disciples who make disciples. Does he say the same to us? Obvious answer – “Yes”.
