Missio Dei

TheMission PossibleGod!

Do you know that God is Missional?  That is God is theMissio Dei-the God of Mission--the Sending God.  Sometimes we get things 'twisted' and we convince ourselves that we are the one's with the plan, that we are the ones with the vision and we do the sending.  NOPE!  The truth is--God sends people of God to carry forth God's Mission and not the other way around. Within God's economy, humanity exists, acts and serves under the mandate, the call and the divine direction of the uncreated One who creates and who loves the creation.

Does One Size Fit All?
