On mission

Matthew 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

The whole world?  Then the end will come?  It’s God’s desire that everyone would turn to Him and be saved.  He doesn’t want anyone on this earth to perish and to be without Him for eternity while they suffer in hell.  But He leaves the choice to us.  But before anyone can receive or reject the Gospel, they have to hear it.

There are still people on this planet who have never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. They don’t know that there is a way to God through the forgiveness of their sins.  They don’t know there’s atonement, propitiation, imputation, or any of that other theological stuff.  They’re in the dark spiritually.  And we have to reach them.

We’re given the Great Commission because God’s calling if for us to reach out to the entire world.  We have to tell every man, woman and child, every language group and tribe, about the message of Jesus the Messiah.  They have to know and we have to reach them.

Pray.  Pray that the people groups we’ve never encountered will be found and that missionaries will be sent into the population.  Pray that languages will be translated quickly and that Bibles will be printed for the message to be taught.  Pray that supplies will be plentiful and that the workers will be many.  Pray for them and pray that we reach them.  For the glory of God.
