Jul 4 Devotion: Counting on Them

Mark 16:15 – And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Christ commissioned His disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel. To put it in story form, look at it like this.—When our Lord returned to glory, and after the first thrill of rejoicing of His return, He is having a conversation with Gabriel. After discussing the ministry of redemption, Gabriel asked Christ a question. “Now that You have done all this for man, what plan have you made to carry the message to the ends of the earth?”

The Lord replied, “The little group of men that I called, I commissioned to take the Message. Such as John, James, Peter, Andrew and others.”

Gabriel says, “But Master, suppose they do not go? Suppose they just stay put where they are? What other plan do you have?”

Christ replies, “If they do not go as I have commissioned them, then I have no other plan. I Am Counting on Them.”

Is it possible that this is the problem in churches today? God reaches men through men, through their prayers, through their testimonies, preaching, and friendships. Therefore, if we do not go He has no other plan.
