The Most Startling Aspect of God’s Mission

To me, the most startling aspect of God’s mission is that he has called fallible people like you and me to take part in it.  When Jesus came the first time, he began the process of “making all things new.”  When he comes a second time, he’ll finish what he started.  But in between those times, he has called us to carry on his mission.
