What a great reminder from Matthew Nevers today. Matthew is an intern with us this summer from New Mexico.
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be My witnesses, telling people about Me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
This is right before Jesus ascended into heaven. He was explaining to the disciples that they now had power through the Holy Spirit to go out and do heavenly works. in this specific verse He is talking about "the great commission" or missionary work. The one main point I want you to think about in this is that Jesus spoke about reaching your home town first. Whether your home town is Jerusalem, Casper, or Albuquerque. I think most people forget about their hometown in that sense. We get so caught up in world missions that we forget to also think about our neighbors and co-workers who might be just as lost.
I want to leave you with this question, What could you do to help share the gospel with your community?
