First, what is a missionary? He is one that is sent with a message especially to another people or country.

Was Jesus sent?  Jesus said, “I have come down from heaven … to do the will of him who sent me.” (John 6:38) 

Did Jesus have a message? Jesus said, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God”. (Luke 4:43) Not only did he preach the message, he was the message! The word became flesh. 

Did Jesus go to another country? Jesus came down from heaven’s glory, not just to another country but to another world! In fact at Christmas we celebrate his coming!  

That’s great, but what does that have to do with me? When Jesus gave the Great Commission, did it apply to you and me? Did he charge our church, or just other churches? Is it part of our responsibility as Christians or is it optional? If we want to be like Jesus, we will be missionary people, not just in name, but in deed and action.

What can we do?

We have seen so many times WWJD: What would Jesus do? We see so vividly in the life of Jesus that he would pray, he would go, he would send. The real question now is WWWD: What will WE do?
