It’s easy for local congregations to become comfortable and allow our outreach to neighbors and friends to wane. By contrast, our Lord demonstrated a pattern of passionate commitment to spread the good news of the kingdom of God. In this message, Alistair Begg explains what it means to take our responsibility to share the Gospel seriously. Our lives reflect Jesus’ priorities when we see those around us clearly, care deeply, think properly, and pray fervently.
35And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
