Mark 16:15 and Matthew 28:18-20 have not expired. When those words were first uttered, modes of “going” were limited to walking, riding on an animal, or sailing on a ship. Today we have many more options; the most recent one the Internet.
Mail, cars, boats, and airplanes have their limitations, but with the Internet, we can go even beyond—to places they cannot reach. Light can penetrate darkness if we don’t “hide it under a bushel.” We must let it shine.
Jesus was the light of the world, but if we are “in Christ,” we reflect his light. When Moses hesitated to “go,” the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?” (Exodus 4). God will use what we have in our hands if we put it to use.
If you have a computer with access to the Internet, consider putting it to use to “send the Light” around the world.
Sitting at her computer, Mary McKinney taught this man [Moses] in Namibia.
After studying through all the WEI courses and being baptized, Moses asked for printed material with which to teach in Angola. Later he wrote: “I am in an area with a poor Internet and without shops to buy recharge. I’m in the villages. I find people who have responded and who are
willing to learn the Bible in these villages. I will be here until the end of June, and I will start the church here. It was impossible for me to rush out and leave these people unsaved. Right now, I am on my way to get some blankets and to buy food. On Saturday, I will go back because there is a brother who will be baptized. I will let you know once I reach there. Be blessed, and pray for me. From your brother and son in the gospel.
