The Call to Missions
A guest blog written by Courtney Hubbard, the Missions Coordinator at Calvary Christian High School, about how she came to the decision to devote her life to missions!
As a girl who went into missions at 19 years old, a few questions I get often are, “How did you know missions was for you?” or “When did you know you were going to go into missions?” Well, the answer is simple: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” -Matthew 28:19-20.
Most people think missions is this elite club that’s by invite only. It is invite only, but we all have the invitation. There is no code to crack or an elaborate “calling into missions”. The only prerequisite is faith. It’s okay if it doesn’t all add up or even make sense. That’s where faith comes in. Faith makes a fool of what makes sense.
What would it look like if you gave up the white picket fence dream to live for something bigger than yourself? You have the power to change lives and change your own. Is chasing this elusive American dream worth it when eternity is at stake? Take a step back and look at the bigger picture.
I was just an ordinary college freshman girl who had a “yes” in my spirit and a whole lot of faith. We were not created and designed to merely survive, but to thrive.
And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest”. -Luke 10:2
