Home can sometimes feel like a rather mundane place to be. As a Christian mom, I realize that I am called to train up my little ones. At the same time, there must be something more, right?
You know, ministry opportunities that exist outside of the home. Because somehow those opportunities seem more important.
Friends, it took me many years to realize that God has placed me right where I am for a very good reason. I have spent hours searching the internet for volunteer and mission opportunities. Hours. All the while little hearts were right in front of me who needed me to point them to Jesus!
If you are a mother, your home is a mission field. The children that the Lord has blessed you with are watching you, and learn so much for you. They need you to be real with them and to show them Jesus in all that you do. Sometimes we mess things up, and they need to see those moments too. We can show them the meaning of grace and how our faith in Christ is what guides us through the difficult times. We can show them the meaning of repentance and forgiveness.
What can happen if we do not see our homes as the mission fields that they are? Quite frankly, the results can be disastrous! Pretty much everything that you do is training little minds, momma. It is a huge responsibility, but thankfully this is something that God has equipped us for. When we truly seek Him He will give us the tools that we need.
What should your daily life as a missionary look like? Each mother will perform this task somewhat differently. At the same time, each home will look the same. Momma missionaries fill their homes with love, grace, and good things. We provide God’s Word to teach our children about our God while equipping them for their future work in His kingdom. We have a gentle spirit that willingly admits that without God we are nothing.
Being a missionary is not for the faint of heart. We need to continually pour God’s truth into ourselves by reading His Word. We have to remember that joyfulness is God’s will for us, and seek it with our whole heart.
The rewards can be great however. Let’s never forget the little hearts that need us to point them to Jesus!
