How to Live in the Spirit

Mission field

Many missionaries on the field need the how-to's to deal with their own hurts and wounds. In addition, they have the reponsibility to teach others how to live the Christian life. We are not called to make converts, we are called to make disciples of Christ, and that includes how to live in the Spirit. Matthew 28:18-20 in the Message translation says, "Jesus...gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.”
