The Great Variety in the Great Commission


Posted by Matt Postiff January 11, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Missions 

Last weekend we had several missionaries in to speak to the church. It was a wonderful and refreshing time in which we could refocus on the Great Commission as the new year begins.

We learned about missions work in limited access countries through the Internet, about Bible distribution, about the training of national pastors, and about translation of the Scriptures into some of the nearly 6700 languages that do not have any Bible translation.

Not all of these ministries are "traditional" evangelistic and church planting ministries, but they are necessary to carry out the Great Commission. It is marvelous to think about how God uses so many different Christians in so many different ways, working together to accomplish the Great Commission to bring the gospel to the world. And then, to think that many of us can stay right where we are and participate in that work through prayer, financial support, and other service ministry—that's amazing!

Join me in thanking God for His great work in the world. --MAP
