Text the World

Cast all your burdens on Jesus, because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

We don’t have to travel the world on foot in order to spread the gospel like Paul and the apostles did. We can transverse great distances online. We can see each other online or on our phones no matter how far away we are and in a lot of instances, no matter the location. Additionally, we are surrounded by mission fields. We have neighbors who have never heard the gospel. We have people in our communities from other countries who have never heard about Jesus.

The idea of “six degrees of separation” whether it’s true or not, I believe we’re pretty close to it. So, if you tell a friend, “Jesus loves you,” then they pass it along to another friend, and so on and so forth, you could potentially reach someone in another country who you don’t know and will never meet.

I think I’m going to do that today. I’m going to text, “Jesus loves you. Pass it on.” with today’s graphic to two unbelievers and two believers. I’m going to pray that the text reaches those who needed to see that message today and that God will use it to plant seeds.
Will you join me?

because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth;
Colossians 1:5-6 NKJV

“The doctrine of the Gospel is represented as a traveller, whose object it is to visit the whole habitable earth… So rapid is this traveller in his course, that he had already gone nearly through the whole of the countries under the Roman dominion, and will travel on until he has proclaimed his message to every people, and kindred, and nation, and tongue.”

Adam Clarke, 1762-1832
