Mark 16:15 - Share Jesus Where You Are!

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
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]
