INTRODUCTION

You are studying God’s plan for reaching the world with the Gospel:

-Jesus Christ is the content of the message.
-Disciples are the messengers of the Gospel empowered by the Holy Spirit.
-The whole world is to be the recipient of the message.

Today we live in a growing world. Thousands of new human beings are born each day. The population of the world is increasing rapidly. There are millions of people who have not heard the Gospel message.

The challenge of Jesus to believers is to reach the entire world with the Gospel. In the previous two lessons you studied about the message and messengers of evangelism. But with such a great multitude waiting for the message, where is the messenger to begin? What is the priority and where do you start? Who is to be the recipient of the message?
