Missional - A Missional Sunday School Song

I was a good kid growing up. Attended Sunday School every week, I even learned all the songs!

The other day in the shower I was singing one of those Sunday School Songs:

Be A Missionary Every Day!

Be a missionary every day! (clap)
Tell the world that Jesus is the way!
Be it in the town or country
or the busy avenue!
Africa or Asia, the task is up to YOU!
So, Be a missionary every day! (clap)
Tell the world that Jesus is the way!
The Lord is soon returning
There is no time to loose, so
Be a missionary
God’s own emissary
Be a missionary to day!


This got me to thinking…….. if I were to write this song today and teach it to my teenagers what would the song say? So here’s my new version.

Be missional every day!
Live and show your world that Jesus is the way!
Be it in your town and neighborhood
and driving on the highway!
wal-mart and McDonalds, the task is up to YOU!
So, Be missional every day!
Live and show your world that Jesus is the way!
The Kingdom is at hand
There is no time to loose, so
Be missional
cus God is missional
Be missional today


Yup that’s how I’d sing it today.

MJ, in Exiles by Michael Frost he talks of how we need to sing new songs. Now that we are Exiles in a post Christendom world, so many of the old songs don't make sense. I think that there is so much more that we can do here. Lets hope we get a bunch of missional minded song writers coming along soon.
