And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” ~ Mark 16:15-16
We look forward to Jesus coming again, but we need to recognize that we have a job to do in the meantime. Jesus Himself told us to “go into all the world and proclaim the gospel.” Elsewhere in Scripture, we read that before Jesus returns, God is allowing time for everyone to be saved. But to be saved, they must know the Gospel. And those who don’t know the Gospel are dependent on those of us who know about Jesus to tell them. We don’t personally have to go “into all the world.” We can proclaim the Gospel much closer to home—to unsaved family members and neighbors. And we can support those who do go out into the far corners of the world as missionaries with our prayers and financial support.
Lord, give me a passion for the unsaved. Empower me to share the Gospel with anyone I encounter who doesn’t know You, and motivate me to pray for and financially support the people who share Your Gospel with the unreached. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
