WE used to feature a mission related post each monday here on OneMessage.OneFaith.
My heart has been to start that again, but I just did not know where to start.
When Jesus told the disciples in Acts 1, to wait for the promise of the Holy Ghost, these words were said to them
"But you will receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and you shall be my witnesses- both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth."
He wanted them to start closest to home, then ripple outward, and outward still, until it was the "uttermost parts of the earth.
In this season, where many hearts are ripe for giving and receiving- some uncharacteristically so- let us witness even more purposefully to those who are closest to "home".
Truthfully, "home" is sometimes the hardest place to start- they are with you "behind closed doors" sorta speak. But once you are able to witness to your family and close friends, then witnessing to others you do not know, is less intimidating.
So for Today, December 12, 2011, our focus mission is
GO into ALL the world and, and preach the Gospel to EVERY one- Mark 16:15
