The Great Commission in Mark 16:15 says, "Go
into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
It is the will of God
that all men and women hear the 'Good News' of salvation around the corner and around the world.
Missions can be either E1 (reaching people in your own culture) E2, (reaching people with at least one barrier to
overcome- language, food, geography, etc) or E3 (reaching across two or more cultural barriers to live and communicate
- in a way unreached people can understand - the love of God for them and His provision for salvation and freedom
in Jesus Christ.
Although only a few of us will ever live - or maybe even travel overseas
to minister in E2 or E3 evangelism; those that do go carry with them the blessing, encouragement and prayers of our entire
Missions is bringing the gospel to those in need - often at great personal expense
and inconvenience to those that go. Let's pray God would raise up many such missionaries in these last days!
