To Be A Missionary

 

Oh, to be a missionary in a foreign land;

To see souls saved;

Or be a martyr for the Faith

And gain a martyr's crown.

 

To be on the forefront of the battle

In enemy territory;

This is adventue; this is challenge;

This is living life to its fullest. 

 

To preach the gospel

Where it has never been preached before;

This is excitement.

 

To work for God;

To depend upon Him for your resources and necessities;

To know that you are a tool that God is using.

 

To have the pure joy of seeing someone

Snatched from the flames of Hell---

This is that which makes your own faith

So much more real; so much more alive. 

 

To live above mere day-by-day existence; 

To go beyond the average;

To step out in faith;

To be more than run-of-the-mill. 

 

While others are content to sit in their lounge chairs 

And on their sofas watching TV,

You seek high adventure

As only the God of the universe can show you.

 

While others worry about petty trivialities, you seek souls for eternity;

You have a higher purpose, a higher calling, 

To which watching TV, going to movies, going to parties,

Cannot hold a candle to.

You are part of God's rescue mission team.
