1 in 4 People Worldwide Is Muslim So Support A Christian Missionary

Missions!

Someone else’s job, right? Well, for the time being, we’re going to let you off the hook.  Sort of. This article is not about personal evangelism (although we STRONGLY suggest you share you faith as a way of life.)

This is about missions.  However, we aren’t about to suggest that you quit your job and move to Uganda and live in a thatched hut eating bugs and speaking through a series of clicks and whistles. (Actually, the official languages of Uganda are English and Swahili, but the clicks and whistles make for better imagery.)

According to CNN and a global report by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, there are 1.57 billion Muslims in the world. Consider the following statistics taken directly from the CNN news report:

  • India, a majority-Hindu country, has more Muslims than any country except for Indonesia and Pakistan, and more than twice as many as Egypt.
  • China has more Muslims than Syria.
  • Germany has more Muslims than Lebanon.
  • And Russia has more Muslims than Jordan and Libya put together.
  • Nearly two out of three of the world’s Muslims are in Asia, stretching from Turkey to Indonesia.
  • The Middle East and north Africa, which together are home to about one in five of the world’s Muslims, trail a very distant second.

Now consider that these Muslims are not simply being born to Muslim families. They are people from other countries and religions who are being proselytized by Muslims around the world. These Muslims believe they are carrying out the commands of their God and Mohammed in the Qur’an.  And why shouldn’t they? There aren’t many Christians standing up and sharing the truth with the Muslims, or anyone else for that matter.

Don’t we serve the True and Living God? Don’t we serve Jesus Christ, who died but rose from the dead 3 days later? Didn’t He leave us with some sort of command or commission that we should use as a guide to living our lives? Go somewhere and do something?

Oh yes… I remember now…

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

The Muslims are doing for their false religion what Christians, who have the truth, fail to do every day!

We MUST fulfill the Great Commission!  And we can, without leaving our house. (Remember, this isn’t about personal evangelism.)

Missions!

We can fulfill the Great Commission by sending and supporting missionaries who ARE called to the ends of the earth.

Bible News Today suggests partnering with Evangelism Explosion International to support missionaries who are actively sharing the Gospel around the world.  Just go to the site and click on “Ways to Support.”

But no matter who you support, throw your support behind a missionary somewhere.  Be faithful and consistent.  Let them know that you care and pray for them.

We can’t wait.  The Muslims aren’t waiting.

And we have the truth.
