“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” —Matthew 28:19
For many centuries, people like you and me have been invited to participate in God’s redemptive story. Often to our surprise—and always undeserved—we have found ourselves linked arm in arm to a great cloud of witnesses. Looking back we recognize faces like Abraham and Esther, David and Mary Magdalene. There are the Apostles, Saint Augustine, Sojourner Truth, Dora Yu, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Bilquis Sheikh. Looking ahead, we see those still waiting to hear about a God who loves them so much that He drew near, taking the form of a child.
Every member of the global Church throughout history has at some point been called and compelled to join in the great mission of God throughout the ages—making the Good News of Jesus known among all peoples.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” —Acts 1:8 (NLT)
It will take the whole church, with the whole Gospel, to reach the whole world. Today, more than two billion people worldwide still have not heard the name of Jesus. As members of Christ’s body, we are called to participate—each of us fulfilling our own unique and specific role in God’s story, until everyone has an opportunity to hear and respond to the Gospel.
How can you use what you have—gifts, talents, time, resources, prayers—to engage the frontier? How can you also encourage others to play their much-needed role in making Good News known to all peoples?
