13 Days Until Christmas
As you worship the Lord today and celebrate the Advent season, I ask that you remember the missionaries serving God around the world. Many of them will not be able to return from their foreign fields to celebrate Christmas with their families. They may be on the other side of the world in two weeks, rejoicing alone or with a few immediate family members.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
There are no excuses or justifications here - go and preach. Our men of God on the mission field are preaching the Gospel to people who might not otherwise hear it. There is no weekend off or Christmas vacation. This is their calling, forsaking all.
Pray this Christmas season for all of our missionaries in all countries around the earth. They are going into all the world in our place, and they need our prayers during the holidays even more. Beg the Lord to give them comfort if they are away from family, supply all their needs and give them courage to continue in faith.
