And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.—Mark 16:15
This week is Missions Conference at our church, so my thoughts are wrapped in what I’m hearing and seeing.
Specifically, I’m thinking on the command of Jesus to share the gospel with the billions of people who haven’t yet heard it once.
And then there’s the lady who lives just several blocks down from my church. She had actually been to my church once and heard the gospel, but she was confused. Very confused. She was also ready to hear God’s Word. Today I had the opportunity to open the Bible and share the sweet story of salvation with her. An hour and a half later, she trusted Christ.
The Lord has been stirring my heart through missions conference in relation to the incredible need surrounding us relative to the little effort we put forth to meet it. And He has been reminding me that only eternal priorities—eternal actions—really matter.
He said “Go ye…preach the gospel.” Those are good words for this week. For this life.
