The Missionaries Who Forgot Who They Were

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Imagine missionaries going to New Guinea. They’re there to love the cannibals. Things are tough and the native peoples are against them, but they keep rejoicing. One day, two tribesmen hit them with rocks and the missionaries forget that they’re missionaries. It’s no longer a mission field- it’s home. That’s exactly how it is for most believers. They treat the world as home and forget that it’s really a mission field. Most believers live their lives as missionaries with amnesia. We forget that we’re here on a mission and think that we’re here to survive or get by, to get the most out of it, to fit in, be successful, or impress people. We care what people think of us. But we’re not here for that. We’re here to give and be a witness and to shine our lights into the darkness. Stop trying to fit in with the cannibals to become a successful cannibal. Wake up! You’re not at home and you’re not hanging out, you’re here to bless. This is your mission field! So get on with your mission. Everything else is just a bad case of amnesia.

Today’s Mission – Live today as if everywhere you went was your mission field. Fulfill your mission.
