(November 14, 2016) Missionary statesman Dr George Forbes reminds us of the reality of this promise…
This often quoted statement by a famous missionary has inspired many to see the divine possibilities in every situation. God is on schedule with his plan for planet Earth. The prospects for completion of the task of world evangelisation have never been better.
- God promised Abraham that through him all nations on earth would be blessed.
- He promised Jesus that he would give him the nations for an inheritance and the ends of the earth for his possession.
- He declared that all the ends of the earth would remember and turn to the Lord and all the families of the nations would worship before him.
- He promised that he would pour out his Spirit on all flesh and that whoever called on the name of the Lord would be saved.

Brian Bell mediates on the above …
Perhaps you too have said something like that…’There must be something better…’ when you found yourself in a difficult situation. Particularly one you didn’t understand or in which you were struggling to cope.

Andrew Corbett reminds us that of this reality …
The capstone of the accounts of Jesus life, ministry, and redemptive work is John’s gospel.
