Missions

Friend without the work of Missionaries at home and abroad, we could not get the Gospel message out.  These men and women are a courageous few that are willing to spread throughout the world the message of Jesus Christ.

Throughout the centuries many have been met with death, persecution, imprisonment and a lifestyle less than attractive to the affluent.  Yet they persevere because their treasures are laid up in Heaven and not on Earth.  The church should support these Godly men and women with a generous fervor.  Most missionaries are aligned with Mission Boards and that is what I would recommend that you look for in selecting missionaries for you to support.

Mission work is very important and during Jesus three and a half year ministry here on Earth he traveled extensively telling those about the gift of life.  We need to spread the good news to every land as well as here at home in the United States.  Even with the Information Age there are locations that have not heard about the Death, Burial and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus said to his disciples “The harvest is truly plenteous, but the laborers are few”.

 

Foreign missions are very necessary to bring souls to Christ.  It takes a great deal of support to help provide a missions family with the resources to prepare for such an undertaking of spreading the message of the gospel.  I pray that your church supports foreign missions and also those here in our country.

 

Please remember to pray for all the missionaries and other evangelist and any other ministry that your church supports.  They really need your prayers everyday.

The Christian Counter

As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I sent them into the world.        John 17:18

 

And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.                                Luke 24:47

 

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.    Acts 1:8

 

For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

                                                   Acts 13:47

The Gospel is the ultimate expression of the mind of God. It is a message that must be told... It must be told everywhere. It must be told to everyone.

 

 He gave His life for those to whom He was sent. We need to be willing to give our lives for the sake of getting the Gospel to the lost world. That doesn't mean we should all be missionaries in a faraway land but it means that more of us should  be willing and it means that we should be willing to sacrifice to see others saved.

 

I thank God for the Missionary!
