Missions 101

Where Are Your Scars?

Mar. 8, 2013By: Kristie Burns

A few great missions quotes from Paul Washer:

"‘Missions is very simple.  There are only two ministries in missions.  You’re either called to go down into the well or you’re called to hold the rope for those that go down.  Either way, there should be scars on your hands.  Where are your scars?  What has it cost you to be a Christian?"  

"I feel that ‘missions’ has lost its message.  That we’ve become strategists and missiologists and we have forgotten that, first and foremost, we are theologians and prophets.  And that our tasks are not to do missions.  Our task is to take the truth−God’s truth revealed in God’s word, to the world."

"Rather than being pragmatic and doing what we think will work, we are to do what’s right, whether it works or not."  

"We can get all excited about missions but do you witness to the guy sitting down beside you?"
