Joy in Christ Fuels the Mission of the Church

Posted: December 30, 2010 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, The Christian Life

Mission begins with a kind of explosion of joy. The news that the rejected and crucified  Jesus is alive is something that cannot possibly be suppressed. It must be told. Who could be silent about such a fact? The mission of the Church in the pages of the New Testament is like the fallout from a vast explosion, a radioactive fallout which is not lethal but life-giving.
