THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: OUR VISION FOR THE NATIONS. It’s not just about a theory or a concept, IT’S ABOUT WHAT WE ARE WILLING TO DO. Speaking of what we’re willing to do, all we have to do is look at the cross. That is what Jesus did for the nations. Only after the cross could Jesus say; [Mark 16:15] “…”Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” That was Jesus’ offering. That’s how costly world evangelism is. If we are going to be serious about it we have to consider what we are willing to do to advance the Gospel to the nations. I am very grateful for the sacrifice of couples who are willing to go, move to a foreign country and adapt to a radically different culture…the sacrifice is huge and we do not take it for granted. Then, there are those who make it all happen by giving…and it takes large giving and a lot of it. Keeping in mind the backdrop of the cross, where Jesus gave his all…WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO DO, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? The need is great, lets all make a commitment TO DO AS MUCH AS WE CAN AS SOON AS WE CAN. We are willing to make a sacrifice at a high level because we have the compassion of Jesus and this is what fuels OUR VISION FOR THE NATIONS.
