While not every Christian will be a missionary to unreached peoples, every missionary is always first and foremost a Christian. Christianity is not a lifestyle, a moral code, a system of religious rituals, or a corpus of shared beliefs. Christianity is very simply a dynamic relationship with a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. Although many words, deeds, and common interests will characterize this relating, these things are not the defining features of Christianity.
When it is recognized that all relationship, including this one, finds both its foundation and its growth in knowledge, the necessity of Christology becomes clear. Christology is not a subject among other doctrines of the Christian faith. It is everything. Christianity is a relationship to a Person, relationship is sustained through the fostering of adoring knowledge, and thus Christology is virtually synonymous with Christianity. The depth and accuracy of our knowledge will consequently determine whether we relate to Jesus rightly.
No one is to be exempt from this consuming obsession with knowing Him. If the church were students, we would all have one major and then many different minors. Minors are wonderful things. Problems arise only when minors begins to usurp the attention due our Major, who is our Master and our Maker. The most effective missionaries will be those who major on Jesus and minor on mission, for it is that focus alone which can make them a fruitful Christian.
Posts in this section, therefore, are simply about Jesus with no direct application to missions. The purpose is to first delve into all of His excellencies so that we might actually be able to one day proclaim them (1 Pet. 2:9): His divinity, His humanity, His cross, His resurrection, His ascension, His return, His kingdom, His sinlessness, His names, His power, His life, His everything.
