Missions – is that something that only some people do, when their church sends them to another country to talk about Jesus? True, those people are missionaries – but so are those of us who stay at home! Your own country, your own neighborhood, sometimes your own family could be your mission field. Everywhere we go, we should be representing Jesus.
God had only one Son, and He was a missionary.
Every Christian is either a missionary or an impostor.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Every Christian a missionary; every non-Christian a mission-field.

We cannot all go to the foreign field. We must express our interest in those who have not had our opportunities by our gifts. Much of the service we render in our own land must be rendered in the same way. But when that is said, the fact still remains that there is nothing that will take the place of our hand-to-hand dealing with those who need us. We cannot perform all our charities by proxy. We must come in personal contact with those whom we would help.
The thing that makes a missionary is the sight of what Jesus did on the cross and to have heard Him say, Go.
The way you store up treasure in heaven is by investing in getting people there.
As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Millions have never heard of Jesus. We ought not to ask, Can I prove that I ought to go? but, Can I prove that I ought not to go?
The motto of every missionary, whether preacher, printer, or schoolmaster, ought to be Devoted for life.
You will never make a missionary of the person who does no good at home. He that will not serve the Lord in the Sunday school at home, will not win children to Christ in China.
I have obeyed the voice of the Lord. I have gone on the mission on which the Lord sent me.
The mission of the Church is to seek and to save them that are lost.
God is looking for willing hearts… God has no favorites. You do not have to be special, but you have to be available.
I hope these quotes and verses gave you a deeper understanding of what it really means to be a missionary. Pray about how you can be more mission-minded at home, at work, and wherever you go in life.
