17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. 18And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
14“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15so that whoever £believes will in Him have eternal life.
16“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Jesus sends us out to spread the Good News. We are not being asked to do it, we are told to do it. Sounds like an Obedience factor…I think it is. It should be a joy for us to lift the Son of God up in front of man to save him from the judgement that is coming. NO greater love is there than the Creator of the Universe providing a perfect sacrifice to build a bridge for us to come home to HIM and not suffer HIS wrath that we so deserve.
My daughter Trina, is committed to her second year as a summer missionary to her community and surrounding area. Some of her work will be center city, and children who may never get this great news. Can you just ponder that thought that some children will not hear or experience someone loving them like Jesus? That is Trina’s heart to share and show them. She is working under a group called Child Evangelism Fellowship. She recently turned 16, and how precious that the Lord has already softened her heart to this call. She will teach two sometimes three groups a day, all of which will be held outside where ever they are permitted to use someones yard or porch…they will teach them stories from the Bible, missionary stories, sing songs, and learn verses…and just love on some children in Jesus name!
Father God, I thank you for your love that is extended to the world, and yet you want each one personally. I praise you for your continual prodding in our hearts to follow after you and to be diligent at your work. I praise you for raising up another generation with more love and dedication for you. I look at these young people going out this summer, and I am blown away at their conviction, and their excitement to deliver a good word from you. I pray that you will surround them with your hedge of protection, encourage their hearts, and show them exactly where you want them. Then I pray that you will bring the children that you have already prepared to recieve you. Thank you LORD, that your word does not go out and come back void! You are an awesome God, we adore you! There is truly none like You!
*** If you feel it on your heart go over and visit her and encourage her, pray for her, and above all Praise God! He is sending out another army to spread HIS love, and set the place on fire!!!
