What is a Missionary?

I wish to share something I picked up today from a testimony given during service.

Just mention the word "missionary" and immediately we conjure up images of uprooting, giving up everything and traveling to distant faraway uncomfortable lands where Christians will be persecuted or arrested or where there is a lack of civilized infrastructure ... but this phrase sums it all; succinctly and correctly...

Every heart with Jesus is a missionary.
Every heart without Jesus is a mission field.

So our charge and mission field is closer and nearer than we can imagine. There is no more excuse. I stand convicted.

Food for thought ... would it be easier to share the love of Christ to complete strangers vis-à-vis to your colleague, relative, best friend etc?
