I can think of no better way to begin 2008 than being reminded of our mission. Dave Black does just this in his post from this morning:
As I meditated upon Acts 1:8 this morning I realized again: Je me dois Ã tout les hommes. I should like to be able to do anything in my power to help them, especially the most needy. I’m very glad the younger generation of evangelicals is waking up to the priority of love and good deeds over degrees and reputations. Acts 1:8 is an excellent summary and analysis of Jesus’ teaching. (1) Missions is for all of us. (2) Missions is utterly impossible without the Holy Spirit’s power. (3) Missions is everywhere: locally, regionally, globally, even cross-culturally.
Thank you for this reminder!
