When I think of humanity the first word that comes to mind is “seeking”. Mankind is forever seeking…fame, fortune, happiness, security, love, success, and understanding, the ideal mate, just to name a few. All humanity is SEEKING SOMETHING OR SOMEONE! It’s a constant struggle for significance and meaning in their lives. Humanity seeks for all these things because they have a desperate need for Jesus.
He is the answer for all of a lost and hurting humanity. The question is, WHO WILL GIVE THEM JESUS? Wealth won’t, the world won’t, fame won’t! The church has the awesome task to carry the gospel to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the uttermost part of the world.
Are we looking at a lost humanity with a heavenly perspective? Do we see them through the compassionate and merciful eyes of our Savior? The Great Commission is all about giving people Christ. If humanity is always seeking, shouldn’t we always be giving them what they need most…LET’S GIVE THEM JESUS!
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 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 28:18-20
