Our Daily Bread For Today 2 November 2021 Devotional, Tuesday Message Written By Tim Gustafson (Our Daily Bread Ministries)  || ODB Reading

TOPIC: Reaching Others for Jesus

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Matthew 28:16–20

KEY VERSE: Go and make disciples of all nations. – Matthew 28:19

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Jeremiah 27–29Titus 3

TODAY’S INSIGHT: Matthew 28:17 says, “When they saw [Jesus], they worshipped him; but some doubted.” Theologian D.A. Carson comments: “If the ‘some’ refers not to the Eleven but to other followers, the move from unbelief and fear to faith and joy was for them a ‘hesitant’ one.” This seems to suggest that Matthew presents worship and doubt in contrast to each other. By positioning some as worshipping while others doubted, Matthew may be suggesting that these two responses are incompatible, at least in a specific moment. Worship may help rid us of doubt, and doubt may inhibit our worship. Doubt may plague us from time to time, but worship can shift our focus.

MESSAGE

A decade ago, they didn’t know the name of Jesus. Hidden in the mountains of Mindanao in the Philippines, the Banwaon people had little contact with the outside world. A trip for supplies could take two days, requiring an arduous hike over rugged terrain. The world took no notice of them.

Then a mission group reached out, shuttling people in and out of the region via helicopter. This gained the Banwaon access to needed supplies, crucial medical help, and an awareness of the larger world. It also introduced them to Jesus. Now, instead of singing to the spirits, they chant their traditional tribal songs with new words that praise the one true God. Mission aviation established the critical link.

When Jesus returned to His heavenly Father, He gave His disciples these instructions: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). That command still stands.

Unreached people groups aren’t limited to exotic locales we haven’t heard of. Often, they live among us. Reaching the Banwaon people took creativity and resourcefulness, and it inspires us to find creative ways to overcome the barriers in our communities.

That might include an “inaccessible” group you haven’t even considered—someone right in your neighbourhood. How might God use you to reach others for Jesus?

REFLECT: Who are the hardest-to-reach people in your community? In what ways can you tell them about Jesus?

PRAY: Father, please use me as You see fit in order that ________ might turn to You in faith.
