You know the verses: “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel!” (Mark 15:16). “You are therefore Christ’s ambassadors as though God was making his appeal through us” (2 Corinthians 5:20). And Jesus said, “When you do it unto the least of these, you do it unto me” (Matthew 25:40 author’s paraphrase). Many Christians today don’t feel called to be missionaries or someone serving the poor. Maybe someone in your family feels the same way. Mom and Dad, take them on a mission trip. Start off doing work for the poor in your community maybe. Perhaps you could join a team heading to Latin America, helping work with children. You may not lead anyone to Christ, but you will be changed forever. When you see spiritual and physical poverty up-close and in person, as a believer, you’ll want to do more.
