Scott Hildreth on 30 Days of Going

Editor’s Note: Every Wednesday morning at Between the Times we highlight the work of Southeastern’s Lewis A. Drummond Center for Great Commission Studies. Directed by Scott Hildreth, the CGCS exists to produce students who are grounded in the scriptures, culturally sensitive, prepared to make disciples and equipped to plant churches that are healthy and reproductive. Scott and the team at the CGCS maintain a blog, Missions at Southeastern, as one part of this effort. So, every Wednesday we point you to their writing so that you might be better equipped as you and your churches go.

This week we’re highlighting the 30 days of going campaign going on at Southeastern. As Scott recently wrote,

The purpose of this post is to extend an invitation to you too. We are asking everyone to make a commitment for the next 30 days (30 days of September) to not let one day pass you by without you speaking to someone about Christ. We know this is a heavy commitment and we also know that it will require a radical adjustment in lifestyle for you. But think of the benefit for you and for your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.

TheCallofGod

What does it mean for God to call you to ministry? Recently, Scott Hildreth wrote about the concept. Here’s an excerpt:

All believers experience are called to follow Christ–a call to salvation and a call to sanctification. Christians can rest in the sovereign work of God and know that our current place in life can be for his glory and we are to live a life on mission. However, the scriptures also indicate that some people experience a more specific call into a full–time service of the gospel and the church.

Praying-for-Missionaries

Recently, CGCS director Scott Hildreth wrote about how churches can pray properly for missionaries. Here’s an excerpt:

Pray that the Gospel Would Be Alive and Run Freely – One of the most frustrating aspects of serving as a missionary is the daily realization that you are only one person, one mouth and there are thousands who need to hear. At times the gospel seems to be like maple syrup in a Vermont Winter. But, in our verse, Paul asks the church to pray the gospel will sprout legs and sprint.
