Going somewhere else

Why do we put six months of diligent preparation into overseas mission…

…yet approach our own cities with such casual impromptu?

  1. Hi,

    Not for arguments sake, rather out of sheer intrigue; I would like to hear your analysis / critique of this quote by Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones:
    (perhaps even an entire post if you feel inclined to do so)

    “The glory of the gospel is that when the Church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it. It is then that the world is made to listen to her message, though it may hate it at first. That is how revival comes. That must also be true of us as individuals. It should not be our ambition to be as much like everybody else as we can, though we happen to be Christian, but rather to be as different from everybody who is not a Christian as we can possibly be. Our ambition should be to be like Christ, the more like Him the better, and the more like Him we become, the more we shall be unlike everybody who is not a Christian.”

    Thanks,

    Matthew

  2. Hi,

    Will that be the extent of your input? I’d love to hear some critical analysis!

    Thanks,

    Matthew
