And he [Jesus] said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation…” - Mark 16:15 (ESV)
Jesus gave this command to the disciples just after His resurrection. The angels had announced their message to the ladies at the tomb – “He has risen; he is not here.” (Mark 16:6).
The message was so wonderful that even the disciples initially refused to believe it.
Many have since heard, believed and received the risen Lord Jesus as their Saviour. However, the command of Jesus is still relevant for us today, as millions of people still need to hear the Gospel.
Let us be faithful wherever God has placed us. Our mission field may not be far away but nevertheless is important to God, and Jesus often ministered to the individual.
