Read it. Believe it. Pass it on.
To those of you on my Christmas card list, you'll notice a little something extra tucked in with your card. To be honest, it's the only reason I did cards this year.
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature."
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
When I read Mark 16:15 and really any verse that tells us Christians to GO, I want to sell everything and hop on a plane to Africa. I know in my heart that one day I will. We will. Right now, though, this is my platform.
I have a circle of influence. I have a little, bitty realm that God gave me. A missionary that stopped by our church recently said, "God isn't going to do what He asked you to do."
This is my part.
I don't believe I met a single person in my address book by chance. I may have blown many opportunities to share. I may have ignored opportunities that were presented. But I believe God finishes what he starts. He put me in your path for a reason.
I don't know the innermost workings of your heart. I do know that God gave you a brain to think and eyes to read. I pray you will read the little insert, believe it, and pass it on.
To my Christian friends, don't be insulted. If you are, dig a little deeper to find out why. I was once aggravated to receive them. I thought they were trivial. Y'know what? If I would've read one or two of 'em along the way, I would've realized I wasn't truly saved.
I put one in every envelope in the hopes that you'll still read it and pass it along. Even if it's just left in a windshield wiper or handed off to a stranger at the grocery store. When God says, "Go," it isn't a question, it is a command.
