“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.” –Ephesians 4:1
Missionaries are called to a very different life than most people. The pressures and ongoing stress can push the missionary to the limit. Yet, we are exhorted to walk in humility, gentleness, patience, and longsuffering in love. Ask God to break through the barrier of weakness that would allow us to live less than to our calling. Ask God to intercede in our hearts, minds, and bodies in such a way as to reflect the glory and majesty of Jesus from fragile and broken vessels.
