"Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature." ~ Mark 16:15
Charles Finney tells that he wento a church service as an unsaved lawyer and heard a bunch of indifferent church members speak proudly of the lost condition of sinners in their town. He said, "You bunch of hypocrites! You say sinners are going to Hell, and you don't believe a word of it! What are you doing about it? You go on with your houses, building your barns, not turning a hand to do anything for anyone of them, and here you stand and tell men ought to be saved! If there is a Hell, what are you doing about it?" It cut to the heart of the young lawyer so deeply, he said, "But what am I doing? If there is a Hell, what am I doing about it?" Upon leaving that plae, he went to a wooded area alone, trusted Christ, and prayed until God mightily filled him with power. Then he was greatly used of God in winning lost souls because he got the "GO YE" right.
Since there is a Hell, what are you doing about it? Do you have the "GO YE" in you? These are the two words that would solve most of the soul winning deficiency faced in our churches. Two littles words - one big important job: "GO YE".
