A YES TO THE LORD OF HARVEST
The message of hearing and obeying God’s voice runs through the bible, it did not come only to Abraham, Moses and the prophets but it continues right through into New Testament and right to this day.
Jesus appears to his disciples and gives them a command Mathew 28: 19-20 “ Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the 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 age”.
All of us have a responsibility towards fulfilling the Great commission; If he is our Lord then we need to accept his authority and Lordship over our lives. We must recognize our one commander in chief and his objectives; we must coordinate our efforts across national, denominational and organizational boundaries and respond to his call. Reaching nations will require a level of interaction which has been uncommon in missions.
There are still thousands people who are not reached and unless the church is willing to extend her witness beyond her own culture they will not be reached. In the large Muslim Hindu and Buddhist blocs especially there are hundreds of people groups with very few believers. Statistics show that there is still an imbalance in the sending of workers to these needy groups.
His command remains Go! Go! Make disciples of all nations.
This command is for all Christians not some, the question is not whether missions is for me or whether missions have a part in my ministry but rather what is my part in missions because I am a believer? It’s a matter of asking God for his directions in his missions now.
Ignite 2018 missions convention is a place where we will seek to understand the call for missions, and be helped to respond to the Lord of harvest invitation to go to the harvest field. We will have consultations on how then should we go, who should go and where is the harvest field .
The call is with urgency and at this convention we will have a privilege to respond.
At Ignite we will find different people from the globe that are involved in missions in various ways and thus giving us an opportunity to network for missions.
Ignite will be a forum to equip and create networks for effective disciples involvement in global missions.
