Missionaries

Mark 6:7-18

I. Missionaries must not be, as a rule, solitary men. For counsel, defence, cheerfulness, “two are better than one.”

II. Missionaries must be, as a rule, frugal men. No luxuries; bare necessaries. Like the soldier on the march, or the exploring traveller.

III. Missionaries must not be, as a rule, sedentary men. Sound the trumpet blast, and then on again.

IV. Missionaries must, as a rule, act directly upon the conscience of men. The missionary’s work is to break up the fallow ground.
