Missionaries

From the beginning of time, God planned to send His only Son, Jesus, to the earth. God planned to send Jesus to save people from the punishment of hell. This is God’s most important plan.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus is ready to leave the earth and go back to heaven. Jesus told His followers that their part of God’s plan was to tell the Good News about Jesus to every person. Then these new Christians would tell other people. This plan has continued down through the years. You and I are part of this plan, too.
Christians should think about what they can do to tell other people about Jesus. Maybe you can become a missionary and go to a foreign country to live. Maybe you can take a short-term missionary trip to another country. But you don’t have to go to a foreign country. You can be a missionary in your own town or neighborhood.
Remember that the words in our Bible Reading are important for you, too.
