Quotes on Missions

As many of you know I have a desire for missions and think God may be calling me to go to the mission field one day. I thought I would share some great quotes about missions.

“All my forefathers have passed away into darkness without knowing anything of what was to befall them; how is it that your forefathers, knowing all these things, did not send word to my forefathers sooner?” -African Chief speak to Missionary David Livingstone

“The concern for world evangelization is not something tacked on to a man’s personal Christianity, which he may take or leave as he chooses.  It is rooted in the character of the God who has come to us in Christ Jesus.  Thus, it can never be the province of a few enthusiasts, a sideline or a specialty of those who happen to have a bent that way.  It is the distinctive mark of being a Christian.” -James S. Stewart

“The primary qualification for a missionary is not love for souls, as we so often hear, but love for Christ.” -Vance Havner

“Many of us cannot reach the mission fields on our feet, but we can reach them on our knees.” -T.J. Bach

“A church that says no to missions is not just saying no to men. It is not just a matter of leaving men in their sins. It is saying no to God’s greatest concern: the spreading of His glorious name among the peoples of the world. This is His passionate concern; it must be ours.” -Steve Fernandez

“Missions is the overflow of our delight in God because missions is the overflow of God’s delight in being God.” -John Piper

“We talk of the Second Coming; half the world has never heard of the first.” -Oswald J. Smith

“The bedrock of missions is not the value of man. It is the spread of God’s glory. The biblical commitment to evangelism and missions is rooted in God’s passionate concern to make His name known.” -Steve Fernandez
