The Holy Spirit has to do the sending before the going does any good. The Holy Spirit anoints us, commissions us, and resources us. He’ll use us and our stuff in the process, but don’t confuse His doing it through us with Him telling us that we have to do it for Him. He gave us a promise, that He would build His church through us, not a charge that we were to build it for him.
