Genesis 38:1-30; Psalms 15:1-16:11; Matthew 21:33-22:14

In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:3

The scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. Galatians 3:8 From the beginning, God’s heart has longed for all to know Him. The Gospel is to be preached to every person. We call this the Great Commission. So how great is the Great Commission to me? Is God’s vision my vision? It needs to be. Is God’s mission my mission? It can be. It must be. —J. A. Bjorlie

Shall we, whose souls are lighted with wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted the lamp of life deny? Salvation!
Oh, salvation! The joyful sound proclaim,
Till earth’s remotest station has learned Messiah’s name. —R. Heber
