As Christians we are called by God to several things,
1. To honor God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength, (Radiate/worship/fellowship)
2. To become like Jesus, (Reshape/sanctification/disci pleship).
3. To spread the love of God to the world, (Represent/evangelism/mission/ministry).
While we could say that the first missionary was God Himself as He reached down to earth with a plan to save man from his sinful condition, there are also numerous other examples of missionaries dating back to
the earliest of times in the Bible.
