Offertory Reading

April 30 - NAD Evangelism

The name of Jesus comes from the Hebrew name Joshua, which means “the conqueror.” Emmanuel means “God with us.” Both names align with the fact that Jesus came to “seek and save what was lost.” Moreover, Jesus said, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near” (Matt. 4:17, NIV). Jesus recognized the preaching of the good news of the kingdom of God as the purpose for which He was sent (Mark 1:14; Luke 4:43). Furthermore, Jesus “traveled from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 8:1, NIV).

Jesus commissioned His disciples to continue announcing the Kingdom of God. Errol McLean from the North American Division says, “Evangelism is not a focus of the church for the sake of the church. Evangelism is the focus of the church for the growth of the kingdom of God. Evangelism is about inviting lost people to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord so the church must once again take up the challenge of evangelism and experience the heart of God in love for lost people” (NAD Evangelism Challenge).

What a privilege believers have today to partner with the Lord in announcing His kingdom through their freewill offerings. Today’s offering will be used for evangelism in the North American Division. Let us fund the mission to finish the work where we live!
