Why hunt for missions texts?

Noel Piper’s “hunt” for God as she reads with a highlighter has been an inspiration to me, as I have looked for different attributes of God in the Bible over the years.  So, this year I am going to “hunt” for passages that relate to missions and spreading God’s glory as I read through the Bible. And I will be writing comments when I find those passages. 

Why hunt for missions texts?

I will close with a quote from John Piper:

But the real source of hope in world missions is not the statistics of man; it’s the promise of God. Namely, Matthew 24:14“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations.” The “shalls” of God are backed by omnipotence. This great work of spreading a passion for God into people groups where there is no indigenous, evangelizing church cannot fail. This is the great hope of the missions enterprise. The word of God will not fail.

Will you join me on the “hunt”  this year?
