A Mission That Matters
This means, among other things, that you have been “sent” by God to your workplace. You are there, not only to do your job, but also to represent Jesus Christ. This does not mean that you make a nuisance of yourself by preaching to your colleagues every day. It does mean that you are called to live out your faith in a way that draws people to God. Moreover, in the decisions you make, in the way you treat your colleagues, in the products you produce, and in a thousand other ways, you can live as a missional Christian, reflecting and extending the kingdom of God wherever you are.Life is a mission, and yet so often we treat it like mission is something that happens in special times and situations. I think we lose sight of the fact that Christianity is meant to change our lives right here, right now. It is not a "special thing for a special times." It is simply the path to being better here and now.
I think we forget that God chooses to make the world better not by making the world better, but by making US better and the world is merely byproduct. It is not so much what we do, but how we do what we do.
That's the mission, not to do soemthing different, but to do what we do better.
