And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. Mark 16:15-16 (NASB)
That means we cannot simply be satisfied with sharing the gospel wherever we are. We must be intentional and strategic about getting the Gospel proclaimed where we are AND where we are not. We are to “go into all the world” and get the gospel “to all creation.”
Are you supportive of your church’s mission commitment to get the gospel to all creation? Do you share your faith with your neighbors, friends, classmates, family and coworkers? Every one of them needs Jesus.
Have you been on a mission trip outside the city of your residence? If you’re not physically able, are you assisting those who can go by helping to pay their way and praying for them? Even if you can’t go personally, you can enable someone who can go. Everyone is to have a role in this mission.
Followers of Christ have an assignment. It is not a secondary assignment nor is it the task of those who aren’t too busy already. The Church remains on earth, at this time, to carry out His mission. The church, by definition is made up of followers of Christ who have been called to “fish for men.” Have you been “fishing”?
Permit me to say it again, Followers of Christ are to fish for men. Everyday of their life. Why? Because time is short and God doesn’t want a single person to perish without Him (2Pet 3:9).
Jesus is coming back…SOON! We don’t know exactly when. We just know the countdown clock has begun.
