Staying On Target
After reading a helpful book on church planting, I was prompted to post a sign above my desk. The sign reads: How many Fulbe will hear the Gospel today? Every time I see it, it reminds me why we are here in Guinea. We are here to glorify God by sharing the Gospel with the Fulbe people. Everything we do must contribute to that goal. Reflecting on this question has given me a renewed zeal for language study and helped me gain a sharper focus in ministry here.
Maybe you should post a similar sign somewhere you will see it often. How many ______ will hear the Gospel today? You can fill in the blank with whoever you want, be it friends, co-workers, neighbors, fellow citizens, children, family members, etc. Then, make it your goal to help as many of these people as possible hear the Gospel today.
