Go Into All The World

by Larry Miles

 The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.  Many times when we hear of the command to “go into all the world,” we think of foreign missionary work.  This is included but not the only option.

When the Bible uses the word “world,” it means wherever your sphere of influence is. We have the blessed privilege to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.  We can never work our way to heaven but once we are in Christ, we should have a desire to be the best workers He has.

The sphere of influence is different for every Christian. For some of us it may be in our work environment that we have the most influence. For others it may be in our schools. For others it may be in our home situation and for others it may be in our congregation where we have the most spiritual influence. We are encouraged to stand up for the Lord wherever we have the opportunity.

Let’s live for Him who died for us. Let’s seek to reach the lost with the Gospel and strengthen the saved. By doing so we can help fulfill the Great Commission.-

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
