Keys—those jangly things—have a specific purpose, don’t they? Their purpose is greater than holding your newest key ring from your last travel destination. While your new souvenir may look cool, it won’t by itself help the key with its purpose. No matter the shape, size, or age, keys are meant to unlock something worth protecting. Only the holder of the keys can introduce you to what lies on the other side of the protective barrier.
With over 100 years of experience, World Gospel Mission has a few “keys” we know to be true when it comes to being successful in ministry. Guess what? We are not keeping them a secret.
This issue of The Call will unlock several of those imperative facets. The stories are coming from the key holders themselves, and I think that is what makes this issue so important. As you turn the pages of the magazine, I hope you can see clearly that missions is for everyone. The Great Commission takes all of us to be successful.
What “keys” are you holding?
Your missions key ring may hold only one key right now, and that’s perfect because you know what it unlocks and I trust you are using it regularly. Others may have collected several missions keys over the years. Have you taken them out lately? Some of your keys may be rusty and need to be polished and put back into practice.
It doesn’t matter what the size of your collection is; what’s important is that you are using your keys. Please take time to reflect on this issue in prayer, asking God what keys you hold. Be prepared to walk in obedience as He takes you on a journey, showing you what lies on the other side of the barriers you unlock.
Thank you, key holders,
