How do we kill our mission- through admonition. When you speak with a sense of entitlement, you won't be flexible, you elevate yourself above humility and seek to be the righteous judge of condemnation. Christ didn't leave us to pronounce condemnation, yet when focused on the law we seat ourselves above truth. You'll want to strike back at your reflection-rebuking the same sin that you know within you, and promote your self-righteousness. People will see you as arrogant, placing yourself above them-which of course destroys the gospel that was gifted to you.
When you move out of admonition into mission, you realize that you're no longer in Jerusalem, but Corinth or Athens. Then you adopt a humbler approach to non-Christians. Why expect them to live Christian lives if they don't confess Christ? You try to persuade with winsomeness, with gentleness and respect, and this is what it looks like to live in mission as Peter counsels in 1 Peter 3:15. Drew Dyck
