Jesus’ Call To Go

28 Aug

Paul and BarnabasEver since the church began shortly after Jesus was resurrected there has been a desire and yearning to share what Jesus has done.  Whether it was Paul and Barnabas, Peter, Hudson Taylor or any number of other saints through the ages, they have gone out, traveled to other lands and shared the gospel.  Where did this zeal and passion come from?   I believe that it came partly from the fact that they realized what an amazing savior Jesus is and how the work he did literally transforms our lives.  They couldn’t keep quiet about it, they longed to share with the world around them.  A strong desire to share that good news with those who don’t know Jesus.

Jesus said it well Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon Image
you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  That covers a lot of territory and many people groups.  That’s why Living Word Community Church spends time and resources on global missions.  It was important to Jesus and it is important to us.
