Day 18 - 21 Day Fast

Day 18 - Pray for Missions

Matthew 28:16-20, Mark 16:15, Psalm 96:3, Romans 10:13-15, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20

If we’re being honest, Jesus’ directive to go into the world and preach the Gospel to all creation can feel like the Overwhelming Commission rather than the Great Commission.

Rather than focusing on how big and complex the world is, what if we focused on being Christ’s ambassadors to our world every day? No matter how big or small our world may be, we can share the good news that Jesus’ kingdom is coming. In Him, we are saved and set free! 

Wherever you live, whatever you do, you can share how Jesus changed you. When we’re all doing what we can do — we begin to see the world isn’t nearly as big as it seems. 

  • How is the Gospel changing your family, your workplace, your neighborhood, or your school? Where are you seeing the ministry of reconciliation happening in real-time?

  • Can you think of a time when you shied away from the opportunity to share who Jesus is to you? What stopped you? What are the fears, doubts, or other factors that stop you from sharing what God has done? 

  • Ask God where, or with whom, He wants you on mission. Where does He have you in this season of life? Where do you have influence, time, and opportunity to get to know people who don’t know Jesus?

  • Reread today’s verses and wait for the Lord to speak to you. What role does He have for you in helping the Gospel reach the ends of the earth? (Acts 1:8)

It's hard to believe the fast will be over in 3 more days. Thank you to whoever put these daily devotionals together.
