His LAST Command is My FIRST Priority!

Jesus stated with clarity in His final earthly meeting with His followers that their primary task consisted of serving as His “witnesses to Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
 
Jesus provides the singular cure for perishing humanity. The Gospel is only good news if it is received in time. So we must communicate Christ’s love and light with urgency and consistency because the opportunities to receive the Lord’s gift of eternal life can be forever lost.
 
Let me share a compelling true story from history linked to God’s call to supply a witness for His salvation. In the 13th century, Genghis Khan ruled an immense empire that stretched from China to Eastern Europe. No nation has ever rivaled the magnitude of the Mongolian Empire. Genghis Khan’s grandson was named Kubla Khan and his mother embraced the Christian faith. Around 1280, Kubla Khan met Marco Polo who journeyed to China on his famed explorations. Kubla Khan told Marco Polo that he desired Christian missionaries to come into his land. Consequently, Marco Polo took this request for missionaries back to Pope Gregory X and he explained that Khan wanted 100 missionaries to come and teach his people about the Christian faith. Regretfully, the request was never fulfilled because evidently the Popes in Europe were more concerned about defending themselves militarily than they were interested in extending the gospel spiritually. This constitutes one of the greatest lost missionary opportunities of all times. Can you imagine the impact that could have been made in China and all of Asia, if this request would have been fulfilled?
 
Here’s the point: The Lord is inviting you to be His witness and make an earthly and eternal impact as you share the Good News of Christ from your neighborhood to the nations. Make His last command, your first priority!
