Engaging East Texas
by Eric Perkins
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age. – Matthew 28:19-20
Forty amazing days of devotions, prayer and seeking God. Now let’s GO and take the Good News to East Texas! This is our home, the lost are our neighbors, friends and family. Scripture is clear, the mandate is unwavering: “Go and make disciples.”
During the battle of the Alamo, in a desperate time, Colonel William Travis took out his sword and challenged all 189 soldiers remaining to step across the line and accept the challenge to fight on. When those soldiers crossed that line in the sand, they knew they were committing to give it their all. In the 1800s, when missionaries left home, many times they took with them all their earthly goods in a wooden box that would one day serve as their coffin. They were going to spend their lives in a far-off land, so they could take the most precious message that could ever be shared: the gospel.
As believers, we have received this precious treasure. Now it’s time to cross the line in the sand and commit to live in such a way that we’re undeniably the “light of the world.” As the body of Christ, His Church, let’s live everyday as His ambassadors, ready and willing to share our story and give sacrificially. Together we will engage East Texas!
All for His Glory,
