THE KEY TO THE MISSIONARY MESSAGE

     And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for
     ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

    

The key to the missionary message is the propitiation of Christ
Jesus. Take any phase of Christ’s work – the healing phase, the
saving and sanctifying phase; there is nothing limitless about those.
“The Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world! ” – that is
limitless. The missionary message is the limitless significance of
Jesus Christ as the propitiation for our sins, and a missionary is
one who is soaked in that revelation.

The key to the missionary message is the remissionary aspect of
Christ’s life, not His kindness and His goodness, and His revealing
of the Fatherhood of God; the great limitless significance is that He
is the propitiation for our sins. The missionary message is not
patriotic, it is irrespective of nations and of individuals, it is
for the whole world. When the Holy Ghost comes in He does not
consider my predilections, He brings me into union with the Lord
Jesus.

A missionary is one who is wedded to the charter of his Lord and
Master, he has not to proclaim his own point of view, but to proclaim
the Lamb of God. It is easier to belong to a coterie which tells what
Jesus Christ has done for me, easier to become a devotee to Divine
healing, or to a special type of sanctification, or to the baptism of
the Holy Ghost. Paul did not say – “Woe is unto me, if I do not
preach what Christ has done for me,” but – “Woe is unto me, if I
preach not the gospel.” This is the Gospel – “The Lamb of God, which
taketh away the sin of the world!”
