God has done such great things, particularly in the sending of his Son for our salvation, that his great name should be proclaimed, known, and exalted among the peoples and in all the earth.
You may be wondering, “In light of all of our own problems as a nation, why do we take time each October to focus on other countries?” The answer is quite simple: the name of Jesus has not yet been made known among the peoples and in all the earth.
Of nearly eight billion people in all the earth, some three billion remain outside the reach of the gospel. That means they not only don’t know about Jesus, but there is no one they know in their culture who can tell them about him.
What we want to do at REACH is to help the church reach farther so that the good news of Jesus reaches people who are living and dying without an opportunity to hear of the Savior. And the church is you! So, to help the church reach farther, you will need to reach farther.
We have some ideas for how you can do that and, for most of you, without leaving your home or job. Prepare your heart for your God to speak to you about how you can extend your reach to help the name of Jesus truly be proclaimed, known, and exalted in all the earth!
Pastor of Global Outreach Nate Irwin
This is the opening statement of John Piper's Let the Nations Be Glad, and it's the premise upon which Piper builds his case for global outreach.
A biblically saturated, trusted resource since 1993, Let the Nations Be Glad: The Supremacy of God in Missions has proven helpful to missionaries, pastors, church leaders, and laypeople. In the book, Piper provides a biblical basis for missions and worship.
Thanks to the generosity of Desiring God, we are able to offer a free copy of Let the Nations Be Glad: The Supremacy of God in Missions to the first 300 people beginning on Sunday, Oct. 24.
Books can only be picked up in person, and we ask that you only take one copy per family. Questions? Contact Ryan Skinner.
The new Global Outreach Prayer Guide will be available starting Sunday, Oct. 31 in the Atrium!
