The mission of God is one of the great themes throughout the Scriptures. As God reveals Himself throughout history, it is He who reaches out to us. God’s mission among us is to glorify Himself through the work of redeeming people and restoring creation. By God’s mission and God’s mission alone can we come back into fellowship with Him. Our desire is that you will be a part of God’s great plan so that men, women, and children from every tongue, tribe, and nation will believe the message of the gospel as it comes to them through the proclamation and life of the church.
As you read the Scriptures and consider the essays and letters included with this eBook, do so with the mission of God as your lens and framework. Before looking to see what God can do for you, consider what He has done for His own glory and how you are invited to participate in His great mission. We encourage you to closely heed the words of Jesus when He said in John 20:21, “As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”
