Is the Calling to Be a Missionary More Honorable Than Other Callings?
Theologian John Piper is suggesting this week that there is a higher honor attached to being a foreign missionary than other callings.

In a Monday post on Desiring God, Piper notes that "history is moving toward one great goal, the white-hot worship of God and his Son among all the peoples of the earth. Missions is not that goal. It is the means. For that reason it is the second greatest human activity in the world."

But to Piper, who is the founder of and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minnesota, missionaries who dare to take the Gospel into troubled contexts merit a greater respect. ...

Having known international missionaries, I cannot emphasize enough that everyone pick up a prayer guide for their denominations missionary board and pray each week for a family each week. If your church has a offering for a missionary association please give. If a missionary family comes to your church, support them. Raise your children to go on short term missionary trip early in life and who knows they too might hear his call.

Piper is apostate. Evidence of his apostasy is all over the net.

Mk 16
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mtt 28:
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Acts 28:
28 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.....
Paul modeled this
31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

Rm 10:15
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
2Tim 4:2
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season;
reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Now We have migrants from most countries already here, surely we are all missionaries?

every Christians is to lay down their lives. Period. the cost is too great for most, if so, they aren't really following Him. As persecution and corruption rolls over the land, Christians are being challenged in every way here, and if leaders are going to deny this and lead from behind, time to turn them off. Lets quit placating our own souls by saying there is a way out of our calling, those who endure to the end will be saved. the justified live by faith.

John Piper wrote:
As a pastor of over 30 years in a nation with modern comforts, surrounded by generally supportive people, Piper explains, "I have always felt that missionaries who have taken more risks, go into harder places, enduring greater trials with less affirmation are worthy of a kind of esteem and honor of which I am not worthy."
from the article
Webster's 1913 Dictionary wrote:
3. A divine summons or invitation; also, the state of being divinely called.
Who hath . . . called us with an holy calling.
2 Tim. i. 9.
Give diligence to make your calling . . . sure.
2 Pet. i. 10.
I have the feeling that a person has to feel a calling to go and do the work they do, and often at great personal risk.

A calling is from God and not from man, now John MacArthur I think is the exception that proves the rule that any Christian pastor that's worth his salt has a divine call. It's not like Eli's kids, [URL=]]] (1 Samuel 2:12-17)[/URL] and [URL=]]] (1 Samuel 2:22-25)[/URL] who thought the priesthood was a birthright, but it's actually a calling. Missionaries aren't greedy.

Fully agree with Pipers stance on this issue. It's balanced and logical, and seems to line up with all appropriate biblical texts.
