We’re the Messiah’s misfits. You might be sure of yourselves, but we live in the midst of frailties and uncertainties. You might be well-thought-of by others, but we’re mostly kicked around. Much of the time we don’t have enough to eat, we wear patched and threadbare clothes, we get doors slammed in our faces, and we pick up odd jobs anywhere we can to eke out a living. 1 Cor. 4:9-11 Msg
In this paraphrase of Paul's letter to the Corinthian church he describes the plight of those who carry the gospel message to a pagan world. The world Paul describes in the New Testament is remarkably similar to Western culture today. We have been given marching orders from God to cooperate with Christ in the redemption of this culture. At Misfits Ministries we strive to live the life that Jesus lived and carry the great good news of the gospel message to those who Jesus loved most: the misfits!
