If the world were a village of 100 people, 67 of those people would. not know the good news and grace of Jesus Christ. If the world were a village of 100 people, 20 of those people would live on less than a dollar a day. The mission of Jesus is to change all that!
In a previous generation we had the fight over whether the good news of Jesus was to “seek and save the lost” or to “to bring good news to the poor”. The answer is both. Those of us that want to see people become Christ Followers and go to Heaven forever do not have to be afraid of a “social gospel”. And those of us who want to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the least of these do not have to be afraid of only “saving souls.” Jesus had one mission and he came to do both!
The mission of Jesus is to reach the 67 and the 20. Two stats, one mission!
