Reading the Bathroom Mirror as Text

In this message Pastor Rich Braaksma is going to compare and contrast what we typically think of when we think of “Missions” or “Missionaries” with the parable of the living and breathing YOU… as seen this morning in your bathroom mirror.

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go…”
Jesus in Matthew 28:17-18, NIV

“He was first and foremost an artist. And by “artist,” of course, I mean a Christian concerned about the art of living well and living lovingly.”
Cornel West, Public Intellectual

“Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”
Jesus in Matthew 6:10

We are in a war between dullness and astonishment. The most critical issue facing Christians is not abortion, pornography, the disintegration of the family, moral absolutes, MTV, drugs, racism, sexuality, or school prayer. The critical issue today is dullness. We have lost our astonishment. The Good News is no longer good news, it is okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn't change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore; He changes them into "nice people."
Robert Farrar Capon

You have been raised with Christ… For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Paul in Col 3:1,3
