Why You Should Consider Becoming a Missionary

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

เพราะว่าพระเจ้าทรงรักโลก จนได้ทรงประทานพระบุตรองค์เดียวของพระองค์ เพื่อทุกคนที่วางใจในพระบุตรนั้นจะไม่พินาศ แต่มีชีวิตนิรันดร์

"If you and I both were dying of the same disease and I found the cure, shouldn't I tell you?  If I saw your house on fire and knew you were inside sleeping, shouldn't I try to rescue you?" -- Dana Bratton

"The gospel is only good news if it gets there in time" -- Carl F. H. Henry

"As long as there are millions destitute of the Word of God and knowledge of Jesus Christ, it will be impossible for me to devote time and energy to those who have both." -- J. L. Ewen

"The command has been to 'go,' but we have stayed -- in body, gifts, prayer and influence. He has asked us to be witnesses unto the uttermost parts of the earth ... but 99% of Christians have kept puttering around in the homeland." -- Robert Savage, Latin American Mission

"People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives ... and when the bubble has burst, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted." -- Nate Saint, missionary martyr "

That if you shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.  For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10

คือว่าถ้าท่านจะรับด้วยปากของท่านว่า พระเยซูทรงเป็นองค์พระผู้เป็นเจ้า และเชื่อในจิตใจว่า พระเจ้าได้ทรงชุบพระองค์ให้เป็นขึ้นมาจากความตาย ท่านจะรอด 10 ด้วยว่า ความเชื่อด้วยใจก็นำไปสู่ความชอบธรรม และการยอมรับสัจจะของพระเจ้าด้วยปากก็นำไปสู่ความรอด

What man is he that desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good?  Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking lies. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
Psalms 34:12-15

มนุษย์คนใดผู้ปรารถนาชีวิต และรักวันคืนทั้งหลาย เพื่อเขาจะได้เห็นของดี 13 จงระวังลิ้นของเจ้าจากความชั่ว และอย่าให้ริมฝีปากพูดเป็นอุบายล่อลวง 14 จงหนีการชั่ว และกระทำการดี แสวงสันติภาพ และติดตามไป 15 พระเนตรของพระเจ้า เห็นคนชอบธรรม และพระกรรณของพระองค์สดับคำอ้อนวอนของเขา

Did you know?  There are 1.3 billion Moslems in the 10-40 window. There are 400 million Buddhists.  There are 800 million atheists adopting Western consumerism.  Who will go tell them about Jesus?  How about you?  Isaiah 6:8 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8 (NASB) 

  Missions - What compels missionaries to leave home and family and go to the other side of the world? Mark 4:35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "Let's go over to the other side." To go takes us out of our comfort zone, to the unknown, to the risky.

There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, (tsunami?)  men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world ; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  "Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory."Luke 21:25-27 (NASB) 

How do long do we have to tell them before Christ returns?

"I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light" -- John Keith Falconer

"Lost people matter to God, and so they must matter to us." -- Keith Wright

"No one has the right to hear the gospel twice, while there remains someone who has not heard it once." "We talk of the Second Coming; half the world has never heard of the first." -- Oswald J. Smith
