God sent Jesus to this earth on a rescue mission. Long before Jesus arrived, Isaiah received a word from God. In this, God again promised that He would send a servant and this servant would be God’s salvation to a lost world. This servant was Jesus and just as He had a mission, he left us (the Church) with a mission. We are to reach the ends of the earth for Him. For our generation, this is going to look different than ever before. Laws are no longer in line with morals and the culture’s view of Christianity is not favorable. The business and political advantages that used to come with being part of the Church are no long there. If anything, it can be a hindrance to claim to be a Christian. But God is sending us a message. He is calling us to an authentic faith in which we trust in Him for strength as opposed to being comforted by the protection of laws and culture.
