The words of Jesus:
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20 New American Standard Bible.
Now what? Are we going? Are we making disciples of all the nations? Will we baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit? Do we have plans to teach them to observe the command of Jesus?
With over 4 billion non-Christians in the world, does your church encourage its attenders to become foreign missionaries? If you’re a church leader, do you encourage anyone to become a foreign missionary? Why not?
A pushback may be, “It’s not the American churches’ responsibility to save the entire world. Our mission field is right here.” How’s that going? The American church has the resources (money, people, and training) to impact the world for Jesus. Are we taking advantage of the opportunity to do so?
The world is lost. We know the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through the Son. Will we show the lost the way home?
It’s my hope and prayer that someone reading this will seriously consider going into the foreign mission field, not for a short time, but for the rest of his or her life.
