1 I am indebted to Tom Stellar for this thought. In "The Supremacy of God in Going and Sending," an "Afterword" to Let the Nations Be Glad! (Baker, 1993) by John Piper, Stellar writes, "Not every Christian is called to be a missionary. But every follower of Christ is called to be a world Christian" (p. 228).
