New Missions Blog
When our Savior ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven, he left his church with a very specific task: to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth, calling out from every kindred, tribe, tongue, and nation the worshipers for whom he died. In the two thousand years of history which followed, the reigning Lord has been in the process of spreading his Kingdom throughout the world in his mystical body, the Church; but the task is not done. There are still unreached people groups in existence across the globe, and the full reward of the Redeemer's sacrifice has yet to be realized. As we strive to labor in the fields to which Jesus has sent us, we need to keep the â€œbig pictureâ€ in mind. We need to remember the greatest motivation for our service, the worthiness of the Lamb to be worshiped by representatives of every people on earth. And we need to prioritize our efforts, focusing specifically on those peoples that have not been brought into the Savior's eternal kingdom. For these reasons, I am excited about a new team missions blog, which may prove a useful tool for keeping the present status of the Great Commission before us, and providing suggestions for how we might engage the task in a more meaningful way. The contributors all have a Reformed perspective and a focus on the remaining unreached people groups of the world. If anyone is interested, please check it out at Kingdom Surge
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain!
