What role are you going to play?

Why do we put so much emphasis on our calling to go? We ALL are called to go and to finish the great commission. Everyone of us has a part to play in the great commission. it is not whether or not you are called to go... it is whether or not you have a special calling to stay! If that is you, then you need to be praying and giving and supporting earnestly while staying. But if you are not called to stay then why aren't you going? Why aren't you playing your part in finishing the great commission and going to the nations? Isaiah 42:6 tells us to be a light to all the nations. Acts 20:24 says our life is worth nothing unless we finish the race and complete the task of testifying to the gospel of gods grace. Romans 10:14 says how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
So what is hindering you from reaching out and going? What is stopping you from being obedient to God's calling for you to GO? What is so important that you can not obey the Lord and go? 

We are so focused on materialistic things that we ignore and put off Gods calling for us to go to the nations because we are scared to make the sacrifices that are ahead of us when we do take the step to go out to the nations, living a simpler life, being away from relatives and friends. But in the end it all is for HIS GLORY! So that people of every tribe, every tongue, and every nation can worship and fellowship together in his kingdom for eternity. 

So... here is my question to you: What are you doing to play a part in finishing the great commission?
There are enough people alive today to finish the great commission. What role are you going to play?

I challenge you to pray earnestly about Gods plan for you and be willing to go wherever the Lord wants you and do whatever he wants you to do. Be obedient to what he invites you to do.
