It sounds like a great idea—training people, multiplying disciples, and planting churches. But why do we do it? Galen answers that question with this Global Story…
Welcome to “The Global Story,” a weekly glimpse into how God is at work through the global Body of Christ. This is Galen from Global Disciples.
Why do we do what we do? As Global Disciples, we’re all about equipping the Body of Christ around the world to make disciples and plant churches among least-reached people. But why?
Because Jesus calls us to. He commissioned us as His followers to “go, make disciples of all nations.” It’s the mission He gave us over 2,000 years ago. And we want to see it accomplished.
Why do we do what we do? Because of the need. [bctt tweet=”Over 2 billion people are still waiting to hear the Good News of Jesus.” username=”GlobalDisciples”] That He can be their Savior. That He gives life—fullness of life—to all who believe. They need to hear, to understand, and to have the opportunity to respond to this life-giving message.
That’s the big picture of why. But we also do what we do because of each person represented in the 2 billion. The one person who needs to hear the Good News. Like Ranbir.
Ranbir is a young man in northeast India. And his brother Sahil described him as “hostile to the Gospel.” But Sahil attended a discipleship-mission training, launched with the help of Global Disciples. And he found new courage and boldness to share the Good News with others. And when it came time for outreach, the Holy Spirit prompted Sahil to first go to his younger brother.
Sahil said, “Today, Ranbir is much interested to know more about Jesus and the love of God. He is ready to accept Jesus as his personal Savior and Lord. And unlike before, we now have sweet fellowship among our family. May Ranbir become a true disciple of Jesus, and make other disciples of Jesus too.”
Ranbir is just one among the billions who need the hope, healing, and eternal life that only Jesus can provide. But it’s for each of these “ones” that Global carries out our work day by day, year by year.
