"Go and be ..."

You may have already seen this, even so I think it's worth repeating. From Blind Beggar - Thanks Rick!

We all know that Jesus told us to go into all the world and be his ambassadors, but the church today has distorted the “go and be” command with a “come and see” appeal. We have grown attached to buildings, programs, staff and a wide variety of goods and services designed to attract and entertain people.

Missional is a bit of Christian jargon used to describe what happens when you and I replace the “come to us” invitations with a “go to them” life. A life where “the way of Jesus” informs and radically transforms our existence to one wholly focused on sacrificially living for him and others.

The next time someone asks you "what's missional mean?" You'll now know what to tell them!
