Great Progress toward Reaching the Lost through Cooperation (Nov 2011)
With all of the shaking happening in the Middle East and the political intrigue in the United States leading up to the election just one year from now, one does not hear very much about the continuing march to reach the world with the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
There are some very significant initiatives being undertaken that are multiplying the capacity of Christian movements throughout the world to learn and be motivated to fully join in their responsibility to “finish the task” of reaching the world for Christ.
Certainly there are serious challenges facing the Western economies, but there are countries where the economies are strengthening more than ever before. We call these countries “developing economies.” Some of these are wide open for evangelization; others require “creative access and methods.”
Even though the opposition is great, the opportunities to make advances for the sake of the Kingdom are absolutely unprecedented in the history of the Church. These are truly marvelous days to be alive and see such tremendous things happening in a spirit of willing cooperation.
