today-1024x564Sometimes we wonder if Jesus had in mind the parent-teacher conferences and nappy changing area in the public restroom when he issued his Great Commission command: "Go therefore."

Although the responsibilities that God has given parents look different than before there were kids in the picture, our role in his kingdom is unchanged:

"Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God" (2 Cor. 5:20).

We who are in Christ are ambassadors for him, a role that we play regardless of our season in life or culture. Our parenting, therefore, is part of God's mission, and it is a strategic ministry designed by God to call people to worship the One who is seated on the throne in heaven. Jesus is worthy to receive worship from everyone—from the nursery to the farthest corners of the earth.

Parents who want to live on mission for Jesus will be encouraged when they ask themselves this question: Where is God sending me? I don't mean after potty training is over or the kids are out of the house—none of us knows for certain what the Lord has willed for us.

 Parents, young adults, whoever we are as followers of Jesus, at school, uni or in the work place who want to live on mission for Jesus will be encouraged when they ask themselves this question: Where is God sending me?

Where is the sovereign God sending you right now? Where does he tend to send you every day? Or every few hours? Perhaps you do "go therefore" to the nursery and back. Or to the school and back. Or to the workplace and back. Be his ambassador there. Go as one sent by God.

If your plan for being on mission for Jesus has changed, remember that God's plan to glorify himself in and through you has not changed. You were created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that you would walk in them (Eph. 2:10). Where will you walk, drive, fly, or sit today?

Once we see the answer unfolding to that question — "Where is God sending me?"— we need to walk by faith and act like the ambassadors that we are. That means we announce the gospel. We may be excited about our traditions and lifestyle preferences, but our culture and personal taste will not reconcile anyone to God. Learn how to articulate the gospel clearly, and pray God would give you boldness in every opportunity he gives you to talk about it.

We worship Jesus, the one who was crucified for our sin and was raised for our justification. He has ascended to the throne room of heaven where he is seated at the Father's right hand, and he has the keys to death and Hades. We have so much to live for and to share.

Jesus sends us on mission. Our lives will have different seasons, but our role as ambassador is always the same. God is making his appeal through us.

GC3 is interested in your journey with God in mission. We are available to talk to you, your mission team, your church, about God's mission and your part in that.

syriaWe don't have too look far to find reports of the on-going needs of people in Syria. Which in one sense is surprising given the media continually looks for more sensational news. 'Reporting fatigue' is common for many situations, but not for the plight of desperate people escaping from horrific personal atrocities and infrastructural damage. Whole families are displaced and on the run, impacting the lives of adults and children alike.

Our GC Aid appeal to bring some comfort and hope to these people remains open. The flow of gifts to help these folk has become a trickle. However, the need remains great and this week we have remitted $2,000 to Manara International, drawing on our 'General' funds. Manara is committed to providing holistic assistance to a large group of Syrian refugees in Jordon. Besides addressing the practical needs of shelter, food and clothing, they also supply Bibles and present the message of hope that comes only through Jesus.

We'd love you to partner with us in helping Manara provide for these people.

Donate online, or deposit your gift to GC Aid – 06 0729 0522196 00 and email your details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Thanks so much.

  • Ashley, (Day 13)

    Ashley
    We are thankful for new computer donations which will hopefully give the kids some skills for their futures. Pray for a new kid J who is 13 and at school for the first #me, he struggles being away from his family because they have many troubles and for other new kids to adjust to life here. Also for wisdom, energy and creativity for all that needs to be done here.
