“For so the Lord has commanded us, ‘I have placed you as a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the end of the earth’” (Acts 13:47).
When Jesus commissioned his disciples to be witnesses into the remotest parts of the earth, they had no idea how much of the world was yet unmapped. The same was true of Paul and Barnabas when they spoke these words. While the world is vast, uncharted territory is not. In both pursuing it and sharing it, the life of faith takes us to places we would have never imagined upon that initial step. Living on mission is never a question of near or far, but right now…wherever you are.
