And then (Jesus) told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. Mark 16:15 NLT

There are opportune times when out in the field that this scripture is seemingly fulfilled in one stop.

Acts 2:5,9-11 was such a day: Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

The diversities of culture, language and people coming together in one locale create an amazing opportunity to “tell the world”
This recent youth camp was such a place. Many were second generation, but the nationalities represented were still there: Lebanese/Greek, Filipino/Greek, Nigerian, Kenyan, Isle of Rhodes, English, American, Seychelles, Egyptian, Sudanese/Greek, Ethiopian/Greek, Austrailian/Greek and a French youth from Bourdeaux, and more.

The world view represented, coupled with the relationship with this church enables the gift of God in man to reveal pieces of His plan. “if it is to be, it is up to me”, seemed to be the subtext of this time in Athens and the surrounding areas. Jesus said for us to GO.

Many are waiting for a supernatural move of God to fire the shotgun start of the race. But it’s already started!
The supernatural move was when Jesus paid the price on the cross and rose from the grave. You have to pick up your baton and run your segment… If you don’t, who will take the place and potential void if you decide it’s not your lap?

In Acts chapter 2, Peter and the others spilled out on the streets and boldly proclaimed Jesus, where just forty some days ago they had been hiding out for fear of retribution for knowing Jesus (John 20:19) It’s our job, now!

Forget que será, será . If it is to be , it is up to me.
