John 17:18 (KJV)

As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

      The only reason the son of God sent into the world was to be the perfect living sacrifice, the only sacrifice that would save the world. The disciples were sent into the world not as sacrifices, but as the voice of God to share the gospel throughout the world.

      Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and savior we are reborn into a new creation a new citizen of heaven and are no longer a citizen of this world. But we are sent out into the world the same as the disciples. It is the duty of each Christian to carry the gospel not only where they live but to the ends of the earth either personally or by helping to send others.

 

Dear Lord:

          As we remain in this world give us the wisdom to be able to share the gospel. Allowing us to be modern day disciples sharing the gospel not only here but to the entire lost and dying world for your glory.

In Jesus name we pray amen.
