6 Billion Reasons...


 

There are about six billion reasons why we should evangelize our world. Soon there will be 7 billion reasons. How are there so many reasons? What in the world? Guessed yet? Maybe instead of 'what in the world," You should be asking, who? The six billion reasons are people! A 2007 estimate stated that there were currently 6.6 billion people on the planet we call Earth. Each one needs to hear the message of the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour? 

My friend I encourage you to pray that God will use you or someone to carry out the great commission. The Lord clearly hands us our task in Matthew 28:18-20:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

 What are you doing to fulfill this task? You may ask what can I do? There are three things God shows us as Christians we can do for Missions:
