There are over seven billion people in the world. Over 5 billion are not followers of Jesus and roughly two billion have never even heard the Gospel. Most of them won’t ever hear unless somebody goes to tell them.
At the same time, roughly 130,000 people are dying every day without having a relationship with Jesus - their only hope for salvation. The problem is both MASSIVE and URGENT.
The God of Creation loves each individual on this planet intimately. In fact, He loves them so much that He sent His only Son "that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
He purchased for Himself men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation and one day we will all gather around His throne - as a great multitude that no one can count - crying out in a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb” (Rev. 7:9-10). For He ALONE is worthy of the praise of all peoples. If even one ethnic group is not giving God the praise and honor and glory that He is due, it is too many.
So, "therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matt. 28:19-20).
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. - John 14:14
