God is at work. He is alive and well and on the move. What is God doing? He is revealing Himself through His creation, His Word, and His Son. God is pulling back the curtain of sin to show his power, holiness, and love to a broken world full of broken people. He is on a mission to reveal Himself and to reconcile all who believe in Christ. God is at work.

And that’s not all. Not only is God at work, but God invites you and me to be part of his work. That divine RSVP is our charter to join God’s work with a heart of gratitude and a spirit of adventure. It is a commission to live with our eyes open to what God is doing around us and to keep our hearts and hands ready.

Whoever we are. Wherever we go. God is at work and invites us to join him. That is missional living.

Every believer is called to joyful, wholehearted obedience to our Savior. This is the duty and adventure we all share. For some, obedience means relocation to a distant land and different culture to share the Gospel. For most, obedience means carrying Christ to their workplace, family, and neighborhood.

If you are picking up on the idea that missional living encompasses just about every aspect of our lives, then you would be almost right. Almost. There is one thing missional living does not include—a map.

When you see the word “missions,” you might picture a journey to a distant corner of the globe. However, missional living is something different. Something more. It is not a destination, it’s a way of looking at the world and our place in God’s work.
