We’re living in a weeping world. You and I are God’s answers to its pain. Let’s weep with those who weep. And let’s weep for those who aren’t concerned enough to weep. God can convict them, and He often uses world events go draw people to Himself. You have a big role to fill. Let’s do it with moist eyes. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with harvest (Paslm 126:6, NLT).
Jesus’ Great Commossion A.D. 2020
In most ways, the Great Commission has not changes in two thousand years: the meeting, the man, the men (successive generations of Christians), and the mission – all remain the same. But the means! That is wheremany churches and ministries, are advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world as never before. The majority of this month’s blog is devoted to how we are keeping the world in focus as we seek to deliver the Good News at home and around the world.
Sometimes I wonder what the apostle Paul, and his co-laborers in the Gospel, would think about the technologies at my disposal today. The rest of this year, churches across America have been closed for months as a way to promote “social distancing” and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Therefore, we moved church online. Moving the church to the internet bettered the church. We are able too hit millions of homes in seconds. So, devil hasn’t stopped anything. With the internet we can see each other face to face. Yet the Word of God are being experienced by tens of thousands of people around the world. Our churches members plus thousands more in other cities and countries via the internet. And here’s what happened, the Coronavirus pandemic has spawned a new ara of creativity. Churches and ministries like ours are coming up with never befored imagined ways to share the World of God. Obstacles have become opportunities! I have no doubt that, once the limitations on group meetings are lifted, we will continue to be use some of the current creative means on a permanent basis.
That’s what fulfilling the Great Commission in 2020 and beyond is all about, using every God-honoring means available to us to preach and teach the Wod of God znd deliever the gospel to the whole world. Only a little over one-fourth of the world’s population today.
