The Urgency and The Importance of the Great Commission

“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” (Mark 16:15 NLT).

As far as we can tell, Jesus wasn’t making a suggestion when He spoke these words. Rather, He was giving all believers a command we should incorporate in our lives.

Here are just few comments from famous evangelists…. 

Charles Stanley: “The severest sin of Christians is a numbing lack of concern, an anesthetized attitude of, “I don’t care. I’m in the fold. Why should I concern myself? Is it a wonder people rushing headlong to perdition? While you read these lines, thousands are perishing, “dead in trespasses and sins.”

Bill Bright, former President of Campus Crusade for Christ (now Cru). “Only 2% of believers share their faith regularly with others.” 

A.W. Pink: “It is true that many are praying for world-wide revival… But it would be more timely, and more scriptural, for prayer to be made to the Lord of the harvest, that we would raise up and thrust forth laborers who would fearlessly and faithfully preach those truths which are calculated to bring about a revival.”

Billy Graham: “Everywhere I go I find that people … both leaders and individuals … are asking one basic question,” Billy Graham has said. “Is there any hope for the future?”

My answer is the same, “Yes, through Jesus Christ.”

Charles Spurgeon: “ So, today, there is no higher rank on earth than that of a winner of souls. Be you in whatever position in life you may, if you are seeking to bring eternal salvation to men, you have far higher employment than falls to the lot of the mightiest of earth’s kings and princes”.
