A World Vision

Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God." William Carey

You're the one!

Of all of the generations who have ever lived, yours is the first one which can finish the task! "Finish what task?" you ask. Great question. The task of taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to every nation, tribe, people and language in the world. Jesus made the task pretty clear. When He left, He said: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." Matthew 25:19 (NIV) He predicted that before His return, 'the gospel must first be preached to all nations..." Mark 13:l0 (NlV) In heaven He saw standing before Him: "...a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language..." Revelation 7:9 (NIV) Since Christ spoke these words, it has never been more possible to complete the task than it is now. Your generation has the best opportunity ever to get the job done!

Here's how Jesus wants it accomplished:
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. "Acts 1:8 (NIV)

  • Ask daily to receive the power of the Holy Spirit to be a wit-ness for Christ.
  • Start in Jerusalem - your home. Live the life with your family.
  • Move out to Judea - your friends. Love your friends by listening and sharing Christ.
  • Go on to Samaria - your school. Tell your story to people you are praying for at school.
  • Keep on going to the ends of the earth - your world. Give your future for God's plan and purpose of taking the gospel around the world.

The need is there.
For example... The number of teenagers who need Christ in Mexico City is greater than the entire population of New York City.

The opportunity has never been greater.
For example ... 140,000 people come to Christ every day around the world.

What can you do to get in on God's worldwide plans for you?

  • Faithfully live for Christ at home, with your friends and at school.
  • Meet a person of another race or country and build a friendship.
  • Pray for a country you are interested in and learn all you can about it.
  • Make plans to go on a mission trip with your youth group or with a friend.
  • Ask God to show you how He wants to use you in another country once you finish school.

God has His eye on you for great things. In His eyes you're the one!
