Near to the one and many

It is amazing how small our world is becoming.  Travel, technology, media help us learn the good and the bad about people all over the world.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by the sheer need of the world and its inhabitants.  There is so much aching.  I ache with it myself.  Truly.  I have found myself rocking in tears with the pain I feel for the souls of these people.

And then I feel the nearness of Christ.  And He reminds me, “You can help them, you will, in whatever little way you can.  But it is not your job to save them.  I did that once already.  And I will do it again.  I’ve got this.  If I can’t send you, I will send some of the many.  I have annointed many to do my work in many ways.  When I call you to be one, my followers are able to do so much more in my name.”

And I feel peace from the nearness.  From His comfort.  From that truth.  From the many.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
