9:9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me," he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
What does God do with those he is concerned about? (vv. 10-11)
Why does God act like he does? (vv. 12-13)
So? What about us?
Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. Worship, therefore, is the fuel and goal of missions. It's the goal of missions because in missions we simply aim to bring the nations into a white-hot enjoyment of God's glory. The goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God.|
Let the Nations be Glad, John Piper
