Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, July 20, 2014

“The mark of a great church is not its seating capacity, but its sending capacity.”

         ~Mike Stachura

 July is mission month.  The emphasis is on the importance of the church being mission-minded.  Genuine mission work engages itself in meeting basic human needs while sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  The writer of 1 Chronicles 16.24 says:  “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!”  As we work fulfilling mission projects, we never lose sight of declaring the glory of the Lord wherever we go.

 Mission is not completely dependent upon the size of our congregation.  Sure, one would assume that with more people there will be more resources to fulfill ministry and mission work.  However, if a congregation understands the value of mission and its calling upon a congregation, regardless of size, resources will be made available to do what must be done.  We should never evaluate a congregation’s ability to do what Christ has called us to do based on its size.  Jesus had twelve disciples, with one of them designated as a betrayer and He revolutionized the world.
