Mary and Martha in Bethany were missionaries numbering two.
Mary sat at the Lord’s feet while Martha prepared food.
Each had a story to tell of the love of Christ, and were
astonished when Lazarus was called from the grave.
Isaiah was known as a prophet who wrote around 700 B.C.
His name means “the Lord saves,” and his words ring true
as we read about God’s judgement and salvation.
Simon Peter, solid as a rock, showed his humanity in
many ways. Yet when he was called to be a “fisher of
men,” he left his boat behind and journeyed with Christ.
Solomon’s wealth surpasses all, however his life was
meaningless without God. Asking only for a discerning
heart, Solomon was given wisdom from God, unequaled
by any before or since.
Isaac was the son of Abraham and Sarah, and he became the
father of twelve nations. From him arose David, a young shepherd
boy who became king.
Obadiah’s name means servant of the Lord. His words remind us
that God is sovereign and we should never be proud or gloat
in another’s disaster.
Nahum comforted and consoled, even though his words warn that
wickedness and tyranny will fall like the nation of Assyria.
Amos spoke proudly of God’s justice and righteousness. His mission
included telling us not be become rich at another’s expense.
Recall these and many more disciples of old, each on a mission for
God. Their theme is obedience and trust in the Lord, which gives
us a timeless message of hope. Missionaries do not always
travel afar – our family, friends, and foes need to hear the Good
News of Jesus.
You are a missionary, wherever you are, chosen by God. Walk in
the light of Christ, bringing His words of wisdom, repentance, salvation,
and love to all you meet – you might be their only hope.
