Some people assume mission in the Bible starts at Matthew 28: 19. That is incorrect. And yes, it is true, the Bible doesn’t use the word “mission,” or “missionary” etc. Needless to say, perhaps we struggle with motivation to reach out to the world around us. Perhaps we think it is for the specialists. Perhaps we have done out of legalism and guilt. Scholars have written on the topic of a “Missional hermeneutic” in the Bible. Here, we discuss this issue and talk about some tips so that we can be inspired to reach out to our neighbor with the Good News.
