Put your imagination hat on for a moment. What if you were standing before a world map on the floor with very tiny lights in every part of the world. Some were lighting up and others were not. Those that are lit represent places where God is working and the gospel is spreading with the speed of light. Those lights that are dark is where God is not working – there is no light of the gospel and no one there to share that light. How would you feel in your heart about those dark places?
I have held this picture in my mind after my partner shared a dream he had of what God is doing around the world. Often my eyes fill with tears, for two reasons. One reason is the dark areas of the globe. Because of limitations God has placed on me, I can’t “GO”. Can you “GO” in my place?
Yet, I often have tears of joy. I see little lights getting brighter and a few just turning on. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:10–11).
Less than a year ago, we launched into a project of writing God’s Plan for His Disciples that takes believers back to Scripture to anchor their faith in the authority of God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit. In less than a year, this tool has spread the Good News of the Gospel to new and existing believers in Vietnam, China, Ecuador, Nigeria, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. You can be part of this movement of God and see lights turn on in dark places!
