In Genesis 12:2–3, God tells Abram:
“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Michael Goheen states that this is God’s “blueprint for the entirety of redemptive history.” It’s a two-part plan, though, in which God first blesses his chosen people and then blesses all the nations through his people. We live in the second stage, and, as God’s people, we ought to feel the burden of carrying the blessing of the gospel to the ends of the earth (Matt 28:18–20).
The Joshua Group estimates that there are 7.1 billion people in the world today, and that 2.91 billion of them live in unreached people groups with little to no access to the gospel. We’re surrounded by those who have yet to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. From Memphis to Mogadishu, we have work to do!
