Good News to Hard Places
Around the World
Missions is about crossing barriers to proclaim the crucified and risen Christ to those who do not know Him and who don’t have access to get to know Him. Missions is about making disciples who make disciples and equipping the local Church to carry out the work long after we have left, so that God may be glorified throughout all the earth.
We talk a lot about what missions is and why to get involved, but we don’t spend a lot of time talking about what missions is not. Missions is not just humanitarian aid. While responding to physical needs is necessary, and it’s a way to demonstrate Christ’s love for us and our care and compassion for others, missions is not only about providing disaster relief, medical and dental care, education, or clean water. Can you imagine not having a single Christian friend? Not having anyone in your family or in your community, who is a Christian? For so many people in the world, this is their reality. We get an opportunity to join with what God is already doing around the world. God doesn’t need us to do this work. He can reveal Himself, however He chooses—through dreams, visions, and other miraculous ways. How beautiful that He chooses to invite us into this process to tell people this good news and share the gospel, so that they may hear, and that they may choose to believe.
What is our responsibility in all of this? Our responsibility is to pray fervently, respond obediently, and to share boldly the message of the gospel.
You may be wondering, is it worth it? Is it worth the risk? Is it worth the suffering? I would say, what we do for God reveals what we believe about Him. Jesus is worth the risk. He is worth it, and He is worthy of it.
