In another country, one well-educated M-uslim woman wanted to learn English. As she surfed through her the TV channels, she saw an English Adventist TV program. She began to listen day in and day out. At first it was just to polish up on her English. But later on, she began paying attention to what was being said in the Adventist TV program. Soon, she had accepted Jesus as well as the Sabbath truth. In spite of the persecution she received from her husband, she is still an active Seventh-day Adventist member in that country.
When Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all the nations,” He did not mean, “Go, while I stay behind.” No. In fact, He said, “I will be with you always.” (Mt. 28:19-20). The mission of bringing men and women to a knowledge of Christ is not just the mission of every Christian. It is the mission of God which He sent Jesus to do, and Jesus in turn sends us to do (together – always together with Him). He said: “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you” (John 20:21, NIV). Jesus is busily doing the Father’s Mission since the foundation of the world. He has never stopped working. Jesus is there in the homes of M-uslims in the Middle East now, preparing people for His people to connect with. May you and I find ways to be where Jesus already has gone so that we can allow Him to use us to share the truth to those who are receptive to Him.
