And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
No matter who we are or what part of the body of Christ we occupy we are called to missions. Missions being, preaching the gospel to every creature. Each and every one of us should be doing something to reach out to the unsaved, to those who do not know the truth that can set them free.
The thing I am burdened for in those who are following the message God sent to us is old fashioned traditional missions. The current form that missions seems to be taking amongst the message is a preacher arranging meetings with an overseas preacher and speaking at their church. There is nothing wrong with that, people in other countries here of that meeting and come then they are converted to Christ. That is a true miracle of the Lord.
However, that is not the burden on my heart. What I am feeling and calling for is brothers who are willing to give up their lives and move overseas to take the Gospel message to those who have never heard. I know that it is happening with little fanfare and that there are programs and ministries that do this already. I pray that the Lord would raise up young men (old men too), but usually its young men, to go to unreached people groups to bring the truth of the word of God to them.
You don’t need a program or to raise up support. You just need a calling from the Lord, a burning passion for it and a lot of faith. You don’t need to go out and ask for money from people. Just believe that the Lord will provide for you. If He has called you then He will meet your every need. It doesn’t mean it will all be met at once, but as you begin to walk forward in the calling, step by step He will provide.
It takes rugged faith and passion for Christ to step out in this manner, but there is a desperate need for laborers to enter the harvest. Please brothers, be willing and of a ready mind to go when God calls you and places a passion and desire for missions.
There are thousands upon thousands of people groups world-wide that have not even heard the gospel of kingdom declared to them. Let’s do all we can to reach them.
