Motive for Mission

blank squarethe-sword-of-the-spirit_nI think that the deepest motive
for mission is simply the desire
to be with Jesus where he is,
on the frontier between the
reign of God and the usurped
dominion of the devil.

Shaking off the darkness

English house

With every morn my life afresh must break
The crust of self, gathered about me fresh;
That thy wind-spirit may rush in and shake
The darkness out of me, and rend the mesh
The spider-devils spin out of the flesh—
Eager to net the soul before it wake,
That it may slumberous lie,
and listen to the snake.

–George MacDonald
(1824 – 1905)
