Mark 16:15 - Go & Preach

Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark
16:15 (KJV)

Service to God includes personal ministry. By personal effort we are to
co-operate with Him for the saving of the world. Christ's commission, "Go ye
into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature," is spoken to
every one of His followers. (Mark 16:15.) All who are ordained unto the life
of Christ are ordained to work for the salvation of their fellow men. Their
hearts will throb in unison with the heart of Christ. The same longing for
souls that He has felt will be manifest in them. Not all can fill the same
place in the work, but there is a place and a work for all. COL300

Jesus told his disciples to go into all the world, telling everyone that he
had paid the penalty for sin and that those who believe in him can be
forgiven and live eternally with God. Christian disciples today in all parts
of the world are preaching this gospel to people who haven't heard about
Christ. The driving power that carries missionaries around the world and
sets Christ's church in motion is the faith that comes from the
resurrection. Do you ever feel as though you don't have the skill or
determination to be a witness for Christ? You must personally realize that
Jesus rose from the dead and lives for you today. As you grow in your
relationship with Christ, he will give you both the opportunities and the
inner strength to tell his message. [Life Application SB]

        What appears to be foolish in the eyes of society is often that
which is most effective in the work of the kingdom.  The ignorant,
the uneducated, the despised of the world are sometimes God's
choicest servants.  So it was with Sophie "the scrubwoman"
Lichtenfels, "whose sermons rose not from an exalted podium or
pulpit but from callused hands and knees and with the rhythm of a
lowly washtub and scrub brush."...
        Her testimony was simple.  "God called me to scrub and preach.  I
was born a preacher, but since I was poor I had to work.  My work is
good and I can be trusted, so they want me.  But if they have me,
they must hear me preach.  No preach, no work.  I scrub as unto the
Lord and I preach to all in the house.  When I am out of work I tell
my Father.  He is the best employment office.  You don't have to pay
or wait....
        "Sometimes we pray so foolish.  For 12 years I prayed the Lord make
me a foreign missionary.  One day I prayed like that and my Father
said, 'Stop Sophie.  Where were you born?'  'In Germany,' I replied.
 'And where are you now?'  'In America.'  'Well, aren't you already
a foreign missionary?'  Then He said to me, 'Who lives on the floor
above you?'  'A family of Swedes.'  'And above them?'  'Some
        "'Yes, and in back are Italians, and a block away Chinese.  You have
never spoken to them about My Son.  Do you think I'll send you a
thousand miles away when you've got foreigners, even heathen all
around you?'"  [Ruth Tucker; Time with God devotional SB]
