:a disciple of Jesus living on mission to change their world
Being a hope carrier isn’t as hard as you think. A hope carrier is a disciple of Jesus living on mission to change their world. It’s simply seeing your family, work, school, and everyday life as mission. Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” Hearing stories of how other people are carrying hope is part of how we overcome whatever we’re going through.
This simple diagram is a picture of the various areas of life. All of society can be rolled up into one of these categories. God wants to release His kingdom into these areas of life through His people (hope carriers), the church. It’s not so much that the church has a mission but rather that the mission has a church.
