Recently, I have been thinking about the apostolic church and the lessons we can learn from their tremendous example. What is of particular interest to me is how the entire church took an active part in taking the Gospel to the world. No, not every member actually went beyond their borders to do cross-cultural missionary work like Paul and his evangelistic team, but nonetheless they did not excuse themselves from this work.
It was a lazy Sunday morning. My wife and I were seated comfortably on our living room loveseat when my phone rang. “Kyle, are you aware that the Amity youth class is in Glenwood right now selling baked goods and produce for your mission project?”
Why is he standing at the AFM booth? He knows we’re not interested in missions, Cindi, my future wife, thought to herself in exasperation as she watched me talking intently with the AFM representative.
