Jesus was sent by the Father to fallen mankind because of God's love for people. (John 3:16)
Jesus said to his disciples, "As the Father has sent me, so I'm sending you." (John 20:21)
As we connect with the Father's heart, he will send us out to touch the lives of others and bring them to him. This is the heart of mission–the love of the Father's heart for people. We are called to be ambassadors of the Kingdom demonstrating that love to others.
