The Word of The Lord is Near You
May 7, 2017

The Word of The Lord is Near You

The synonyms that best describe this wonderful reality of “near you” are adjoining and immediate. The Word of The Lord is “Adjoining” you, the need to send those with The Word of The Lord is “Immediate”.

Rom 10:8-15 - “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

This must be A House of Doing and Sending!!!

  • Doing. (prayer, praise & worship, meeting needs, preach the gospel, bringing restoration, etc.)
  • Sending. (Throughout the Word God had His people send and equip others)

From a missionary, “Aren’t missionaries the crème of the crop? Um, yeah, no. Turns out, we’re just people.”

Wherever the Gospel is advancing, there is the front line. Wherever lives are being transformed by the love of Jesus, there is the leading edge of the Kingdom.

The call of God on all who serve can have zero disconnect!

Mark 16:15 - He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

2 Cor. 8:2 …Macedonian churches.  In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.

But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 2 Cor. 8:7

"If I had 1,000 lives, I'd give them all for China" — Hudson Taylor

"To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map." — William Carey

"If a commission by an earthly king is considered a honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?" — David Livingstone

"Lost people matter to God, and so they must matter to us." — Keith Wright

“We criticize those in lands where most are lost and away from God. We then withhold the one “Message” that would take away all criticism.” – Darrell Trout

The Word of The Lord is Near You
“Do” all we should “Do” hear!
Send as much as we can there!!! 

Oh the Joy that will fill us all when are “Doing” and “Sending”. It is a complete Joy full of Glory and God’s Presence!!!
