The Same Reward
And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
Much as we’d like to, not all of us can go to the mission fields in obedience to
the Great Commission.
This doesn’t mean, however, that we can’t fulfill our role in the Commission
right where we are. We can impact what happens in these nations in two ways.
The first way is through prayer. First Timothy 2 tells us to pray for all men.
Particularly, we need to pray for the harvest workers as well as for the
unsaved. Prayer is the secret weapon we Christians have that can cross any
border and penetrate any area. Secondly, we can make giving to the missions a
priority so that food, medical supplies and life-saving necessities can be
brought along with the Gospel to a lost and dying world. First Samuel 30:24
promises that the share of those who stay with the supplies is to be the same
as that of those who go down to the battle.
Whatever your part in the Great Commission, God’s Word says that you will have
the same reward as those on the front lines. Those behind the scenes are just
as important as those going into battle, for they keep supplies coming in and
give life-saving gifts to help those who need it most.
