Evangelism Explosion’s Congress of The Nations: The Great Commission in Action

  • Monday, August 29, 2016

When Jesus gave the Great Commission to the disciples, these ordinary men were faced with a seemingly overwhelming task: Making disciples of all nations.  

Yet in the midst of this seemingly overwhelming directive, Jesus assured them, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

And that we draw ever closer to the end of the age, Christians continue the work of taking the gospel to every corner of the earth.

"If He doesn't change our circumstances, He changes our hearts to meet our circumstances." - Max Lucado

Recently, Steve Douglass reflected on these words in a recent edition of "Making Your Life Count". He reminds us of the power of a changed heart by posing the question, "Just how have you seen God's grace evident in your own life?"
