“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
Christmas season is upon which means one thing: The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is here. Jesus has given us a mission. We are to go and make disciples of ALL nations. One of the greatest privileges of this life is the opportunity we have to partner with God in making his name great among the nations. We can partner in His mission through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 100% of the Lottie Moon Offering goes to support missionaries working overseas.
We have a command to make disciples of all nations. I pray that this season we will sacrifice to help others shrouded in darkness experience the light of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The International Mission Board has over 5,000 missionaries throughout the world on assignment to fulfill the Great Commission. IMB workers are placed all over the world with a large concentration in the 10/40 window. The Harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
This past fall, IMB President David Platt has made a decision to scale back the number of missionaries on the field due to a lack of funding. Sadly, there are more missionaries who want to go and serve the Lord overseas than there is money to send them there. God is doing a work among young believers convicting them to go to the nations. We have several students in our church who have felt God’s call to serve Christ on the mission field. Every church must do their part to bring the gospel to the world. The Lottie Moon Christ Offering is one way we can do our part to ensure that all have a chance to hear and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Right now, they are more laborers ready to go into the field, but there are not enough funds to send them. Our church goal this season is $2,500. I pray we will rise up to help meet the need so the lost can hear and believe the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ. Let us be part of the making disciples in the nations. This is a great privilege. Let us do our part.
