“Therefore go to all nations and make disciples, teaching them to obey all I commanded you and I will be with you to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18-20.
Missions involves doing something and it means getting off of your couch/pew/bean-bag. It requires active participation but does it mean you have to ship out to the jungles of South-East Asia? Is it living in grass huts bringing Bibles to undiscovered tribes who’ve never seen white people before? Not necessarily. One of the last things Jesus said to his followers was “…you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) At the time, they were hanging out in Jerusalem – so the command was to witness in their local region as well as overseas. So… GO SERVE!!!
