Romans 10:15 – And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
God wants us to use some money to take the Good News around the world. We invest in eternity every time we use money to bring others to Jesus.
When you save to go on a mission trip, that’s an investment in God’s Global Fund. When you help others go on a mission trip or for evangelism, that’s an investment in God’s Global Fund, too.
This also includes using your money to encourage your friends to trust in Jesus.
Paul says in Romans 10:13-15, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Imagine when you die and get to heaven, you will encounter friends who say, “Thank you for investing in me. I’m in heaven because of you! I’m not your friend for life; I’m your friend for eternity. I’m in heaven because you cared enough. You bought me a Bible. You paid my transport to that life-changing event. You gave me a book that pointed me to Jesus.”
Others will say, “You spent your money to help spread the Good News to my village, even though you had never seen us before. Because you gave, I became a follower of Christ. I’m in heaven because of you!”
Helping others find Jesus is the highest use of your money. How will you invest in God’s Global Fund? Will you go on a mission trip or provide funds so someone else can go on a mission trip? Will you give so that your friends or total strangers will hear about Jesus?
We need to invest in and sponsor the spread of the Gospel.
– What investments have you made in God’s Global Fund, and what results have you seen?
– What are some sacrifices you can make so that you can give more to God’s Global Fund?
– What do you think it looks like to use your money to help your friends trust in Jesus?
