Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Every church should be a missionary Church because every church worships a missionary God. What many call the greatest verse in the Bible vividly describes the missionary activity of God.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (NKJV)

Note the following:

1. The Missionary Motive
"For God so loved"

A love for God and a love for the lost are important ingredients for every missionary. This was the divine motive. For God so "loved" that he gave.

2. The Missionary Map
"the world"
The whole world is our mission field. Every ethnic group. Every language group. Every race on Earth.
All people in all places are to reached.

3. The Missionary Means

"that He gave"
Every missionary is a great giver. They give up many things precious to them to carry the One most precious to others.

4. The Missionary Message

The essentials of the Gospel are in John 3:16. What a great message we have. No other group on Earth has been charged with so great a task with so great a message.

A. Jesus is the Son of God who died for us.

"His only begotten Son"
B. Anyone can be saved by trusting Christ.
"whosoever believes"
C. Judgment awaits those who do not believe.
