Missions : God’s Heartbeat Our Heartbeat

We talk of the Second Coming; half the world has never heard of the first. (Oswald J. Smith)

Lost people matter to God, and so they must matter to us. (Keith Wright)

If I had 1,000 lives, I’d give them all for China. (Hudson Taylor, missionary to China)

If you found a cure for cancer, wouldn’t it be inconceivable to hide it from the rest of mankind? How much more inconceivable to keep silent the cure from the eternal wages to death.  (Dave Davidson)

We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.  (John Stott)

God had only one Son and He made that Son a missionary. (David Livingstone, missionary to Africa)

God is a God of missions. He wills missions. He commands missions. He demands missions. He made missions possible through His Son. He made missions actual in sending the Holy Spirit.   (George Peters)

We should not ask, “What is wrong with the world?” for that diagnosis has already been given. Rather, we should ask, “What has happened to the salt and light?”  (John Stott)

I’ve seen for too many Christians who are more willing to travel halfway around the world to volunteer for a week in an orphanage, but who cannot bring themselves to take the personal risk of sharing Jesus with the co-worker who sits day after day in the cubicle right next to them. (Lee Strobel)

There are only three kinds of Christians when it comes to world missions: zealous goers, zealous senders, and disobedient. (John Piper)

I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call. It is man who will not respond!

(Isobel Kuhn, missionary to China and Thailand)

If you take missions out of the Bible, you won’t have anything left but the covers.    (Nina Gunter)
