There is a tension between worship and mission. Many of you have probably experienced this tension at some point in time as you were figuring out a next step or direction for your life. Do we wait on the Lord until we get clear direction, or do we go on mission and trust God to direct us as we go?

I think it’s both. Matthew 28:5–7 records the story of Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, who got clear direction as they went and encountered Jesus as they went.
