Why do we go? There are many reasons for us personally and for every individual Christian to go to the nations. Years ago, around 1982, when Dana and I first committed ourselves to walking with the Lord, we heard the call to the nations. He has led us faithfully, working His plan for our lives, so that we may reach nations for His glory.
Every Christian is called to reach the lost. Also, every Christian is called to reach out to the nations that are yet to know who the only true God is and of His love for them in Christ the Savior. We may not all physically go to distant lands, but we may pray and give for others to go. It is evidence through what the Word has to say. We only need to hear and obey.
1. Because God has promised to bless all nations.(Gen 12:1-3)
2. Because Jesus has already purchased people from every tribe and nation with His blood. (Rev 5:9)
3. Because the Harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. (Matt 9:37)
4. Because the destiny of the lost (Rom 1; John 3:18; John 14:6)
5. Necessary for lost to hear the Gospel message, someone must tell them (Rom 10:14-15)
6. Because we will be held accountable (Ezek 33)
7. Because to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:47-48)
8. Because the glory of God will cover the whole earth. (Hab 2:14; Ps 72:19, 86; Isa 11:9)
9. Because of the commands of Jesus to go into all the world. (Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8, 13:47; John 20:21)
10. The Father is waiting for the precious fruit of the earth! (James 5:7; 2 Peter 3:9)
And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
