So many problems in today’s world but only one answer: The Great Commission. When you make an appointment to go to the Doctor, you are not just going to find out about your problem, you are looking for an answer.
Jesus tells us in Mark 16: 15-18 to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
Then He gives specific directions on how to do this in the next two verses:
“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My Name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will get well.” So if the Holy Spirit opens doors for you to do any of these actions, you are operating in the Great Commission.
I was reading the Christian history of Egypt this week and found out that Mark was sent out there to Alexandria by Peter, the apostle. When Mark (who wrote the same gospel) arrived there his sandal was broken. He took it to a shoemaker, and waited for him to fix it. The artisan hurt his hand while fixing the strap and what did Mark do? He laid hands on the man’s hand for healing and he was instantly made whole. This miracle with the help of a church Mark established in Alexandria, established the Coptic Christian Church in Egypt and converted something like half of Alexandria. Something as simple as a broken sandal brought half of a city to the Lord. Watch where the Holy Spirit takes you this week and see what opportunities He opens up for you. Adventures in faith!!
