Focus Scripture: Matthew 24:14
International Missions- Let’s See The End!
“This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations. And then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
Most of us are pretty familiar with the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), or even the last words of Jesus before He ascended into heaven (Acts 1:8). We know these commands. We know it is what we are supposed to do! But I think Jesus gives us even MORE motivation to want to get the gospel to the ends of the earth. We have several clues as to when the end will come. But the best one is seen in our focal verse for today. It will come when the good news, this gospel, has reached ALL people groups, nations, and tongues. Better yet, take a look at 2 Peter 3:12. We read in this verse that we can actually “hasten” (NKJV) or “speed” (NIV) the coming of the Day of the Lord. Your church can play a part in when Jesus will return! How? By taking the message of salvation to the nations. Better yet, by being involved in taking it to those who have never heard, the Unreached People Groups of the world. Wouldn’t it be incredible to be alive when that last group gets the gospel? Wouldn’t it be even better to know that you and your church had something to do with it? You would see the end come AND Jesus’ return! Let’s take the Word to the world!
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, Thank you for the wonderful salvation that you provide through Your Son Jesus. What an incredible gift! Please give me and my church wisdom and direction and opportunities to take this good news to those who have never heard! For Your glory! Amen
