If you believe that God has placed you on this earth to do great things around the world, hopefully you are currently doing something about it. If not, what are you waiting for?
Every day that we wait to go, to send, and to pray in regards to world missions, more people die without knowing that God died for them.
On the other hand, by going, by sending, and by praying, we put into effect the very power that compels us to relieve the suffering of others around the world.
God did not place us on this earth simply for us to work, earn money, and buy lots of things for ourselves. No, he gave us the ability to work, to earn, and to serve in order for us to share with, to give to, and to love others around the world who live in circumstances different from our own. When we break through the preconceived ideas of differences in locations, languages, races, incomes, and nationalities, we are able to realize that we are all the same in God’s heart.
We have a deadline. Up to the moment you and I take our final breaths here on earth, we are obligated to move forward the cause of Christ, the purpose of the Gospel, and the calling of our hearts. If we ignore those directives (laid out before us from the foundation of time), then the excuse of “I didn’t do it because” will NOT be a sufficient answer when we give an accounting of our lives to God.
Today, may you look for and find ways of serving where you are and going where you are called!
