“Find a cause you believe in and work with others to further it.” The matchstick suggestion this week sounds to me like the great commission. “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone” (Mark 16:15, ESV). Like most Christians I financially support my church and Christian missions. Is that enough? The apostles took Jesus’ command seriously. According to early Christian tradition they traveled the known world telling of how Jesus brought salvation to all humankind. The apostle Paul’s travels are well recorded through Luke’s writings and those of Paul’s own letters to the various churches. But, what about us—you and me? We’re not out and about every day traveling around preaching the gospel. I have to believe as we as a body, Christ’s body, support Christian outreach, and individually live the Christian life, serving others and sharing God’s love as we go, we are proclaiming the good news of the kingdom.
