The Timeliness of Sending

You may not realize the strategic timely-ness of sending ten per-cent of Creekers on a mission trip the next five years. Yes, it will be good for us at Indian Creek but it is also a part of fulfilling the Great Commission. This is not just about what would happen in us but also about what would happen through us. We serve a sending God who wants all of His children to come to know Him.

In our generation we are nearing the first time in human history where we can say that the gospel will have reached every tribe, language and tongue.

Matt 24:14
And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations[a]will hear it; and then the end will come.

Never before in history could this be said. Followers of Jesus have prayed, sweated, bleed and died for 2,000 years to reach this climactic point in history and we are here. We are the generation. Will the end come immediately? We don’t know–we’ve never fulfilled this condition before but even conservative efforts say it will be 14 years or less at the rate we are going. I’ve seen the book where every unreached people group is documented and with that is the detail that tells where they are and what level of engagement is taking place presently.

Why are you alive at this moment in time?
So why are we here? Why are you here? You could have been born anytime it was in the will of God. You could have been born in the American revolution, the civil war or civil rights. But no, you are on the stage of life for such a time as this. Why? What does God uniquely want from you? What if we have 14 years before there is a trigger that begins a new biblical era?

Will you be a part of what God is up to? In the interconnected world in which we live we can be a part of fulfilling the Great Commission both around the corner and around the world. When you are a follower of Jesus in 2013 you can be on mission locally and you can be a part of sharing the Good News globally too.
