God's Servant
A missionary is God's chosen servant, in whom the Holy Spirit dwells and through whom God is glorified. He is a person in whom God has placed the interests of the world. Where he serves is God's business. However, the KEY to his life and service is PRAYER. Thus Paul says in Colossians 4:2-4, "Devote yourselves to prayer . . that God may open a door . . that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ." We, the Church, share in the missionary enterprise through prayer. a Church praying for its missionaries is a visionary, prosperous Church advancing the Kingdom.
