When a man or woman clearly understands the gospel message, Romans 10:11-15 comes alive in their hearts and they see the mission call in a different way. “How shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?”
When a man or woman comes to terms with these four questions you will hear many say, “Here I am Lord send me.” And you will hear the church say, “Go, and we will Go with you.” I believe the power of the call of God is in understanding the truth of the gospel message in one’s own life and seeing God high and lifted up as Isaiah saw Him in the Word of God.
The book, Stranger on the road to Emmaus, by John Cross, is a good place to start in ones understanding of what the gospel message really is. In missions one can dig a well, start a food feeding service, and have a prayer walk and much more but to see a growing church among the unreached the gospel message must be preached and understood in their language.
Missions without a clear understanding of the gospel message can do many good deeds but without the preaching of the gospel how shall they be saved? Check out the book, “The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus” and let John Cross open your eyes to what the gospel message really means looking at it from start to finish. Ethnos 360 can be an open door to those that hear Jesus say, Go and I will go with you. Jack
