Some may wonder why we left the comforts of the USA to live in a foreign country, learn a different language, and adapt to a new culture… and the reason is simple. We continue everyday, through all the difficulties, knowing that people are coming to know Jesus Christ and by this He is glorified.
In 1 Kings 8:60 Solomon, while dedicating the newly built temple, expresses his main goal for building God’s house – that all the world may know the God of Heaven! As the temple was built for this purpose several thousands of years ago, so we continue building God’s church for this same purpose. Our Father truly is most glorified when we obey His commandment to tell the nations about Him.
Isaiah 53:11 tells us that God will be satisfied when He sees the fruit of His suffering. Today, I hope we will see more enter into the kingdom for His glory. God help us to remember to reason for our ministry – so that all the world may know.
