“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
- Mark 16:15
The commission of Jesus was not only given to His disciples but to all His followers. If you take “go” out of God there is not much left. We cannot afford to be disobedient to His commission. The lateness of the hour requires it. The need of the world requires it - Jesus is coming, and this gospel must be preached to every nation so that all come under the sound of the gospel.
Multitudes are in indecision and it is the believers’ responsibility to take the gospel to the whole world. C.T. Studd, a great missionary, once said, “Some live within the sound of church and chapel bells, but I want to run a rescue ship within a yard of hell”. Another great missionary pastor said, “Why should some hear the gospel twice when so many in the world have not heard it once”.
The harvest is outside our church buildings, we need to go to them and bring them the good news of Jesus. We are to go to the business world, to the education world, to the political world, to all people everywhere and by all means available, to us proclaim this glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
When the gospel has been preached to the whole world then the end shall come. Let us avail ourselves of the opportunity today to share Jesus with someone. Cities, nations, the world, people everywhere need to know about Jesus. God gave us a passion for those who do not know Him as we reach out in love to touch the world with His love.
Dear Lord Jesus thank You for Your love that compels us to reach others with the glorious gospel. Help me to take this message that is powerful in transforming the lives of people.
