1. God is the first missionary. God was the first missionary. He spoke of judgment, but also of grace. Immediately after the Fall of man, when humanity's history already appeared doomed, God did not leave things as they were. Rather, in his grace he himself came into the Garden of Eden to search for Adam and Eve and to ask, "Where are you?" (Genesis 3:9). Like every good missionary, God was not deterred by the fact that humanity did not want to hear the good news. He proclaimed judgment to them, and then he proclaimed the coming redemption (Genesis 3:14-21). If a missionary is someone who brings the message of judgment and God's gracious answer for that judgment to people, not all of whom want to hear it (John 1:11: "He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him"), then God himself is and was the first missionary."
