This week, Luis talks about who our "neighbors" are, and how we can love them! You will also here about the Love Alaska festival, why tradition can be helpful, and how to have a passion for the Good News!
I know many sincere young Christians struggle to find God’s will. For many, it can almost become paralyzing. They wonder about each and every thing, if they are or are not in God’s will. I can understand this, because I struggled with this as a young man too. I wondered what God’s call on my life was. And finally my mother wisely told me one day, “Jesus gave the call 2,000 years ago!” And you know, that’s really true, isn’t it?
God’s will for you is that you be saved. That you love Him, and that you love your neighbor. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, you don’t have to wait to reach your world. You don’t have to be paralyzed waiting for God to give you some specific insight or calling. God has already given you His Word and the Holy Spirit and His great commission! You remember what it says: “Go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. Whoever does not believe is condemned.” God wants to use you, right now, today to reach others for Him. And there’s no better way to love your neighbor than by sharing with them the Good News of Jesus Christ.
So step out in faith today. You can trust that God is guiding your steps as you seek to reach your world with His Good News. This is Luis Palau
When you hear the name of this radio program, “Reaching Your World” you may think to yourself, world? I could never afford to travel around the world to share the Good News. Or maybe you can’t get the time off work. Or perhaps you are caring for young children or an elderly relative full-time. If you’re thinking, “how could I ever reach the world?” I want to encourage you today that you may already be doing just that. You don’t have to travel far to reach your world. Your world consists of the very people you’re caring for already. In your own home, in your neighborhood, at your place of employment, or at your school. Jesus says in the Gospel of John, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” So who can you love today? Who is close to you already? God has placed these people near you for a reason.
Actively look for ways to meet needs and begin spiritual conversations. And if you do feel passionate about international matters but traveling is not feasible at this time in your life, that’s okay too. Pray for missionaries! Consider financial support for those who are working overseas. The point is, we all have a part to play and a job to do. We all can reach our world! Do it today, won’t you?
