In Mark 16:15 Jesus said,
"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
In Matthew 13:38 He said,
"The field is the world…"
We need to lift up our eyes upon the harvest field "of the world."
It may sound crazy, but God is expecting us to do something about the salvation of the whole world!
In James chapter five, we are told that God is like a farmer waiting patiently for the precious fruit "of the earth." The implication there is that the Lord is coming, but there is a great global harvest coming first.
Here are some things you can do to be a part of reaching the world for Christ:
Pray - Matthew 9:37-38 says, Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
Give - Generously support ministries that are reaching the lost. Make the mission outreaches of your own church a priority.
Go - Jesus' command to go is to all believers. At the very least, take a short term missions trip to share the Good News with others.
Remember, the only things we will take to heaven with us are the precious souls we have brought to Christ.
