To the Ends of the World

Did they not hear?  Of course they did: 
Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.’

Romans 10:18

You, reading this, especially those of you who believe in the name of Christ and his power to break the bondage of sin; you are proof that these words are true. The word of God and the message of his mercy in Christ has surely come “to the ends of the earth”, for it has come to rest with you.  (It would seem God has no trouble with publicity—even the heavens speak a good word that is louder than sound.)

And that Word has not finished moving yet.  It is still making itself known, achieving the purpose for which it was sent (Is. 55:11).

You who have heard this word may be familiar with it, may have heard repeatedly, “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.”  You have been set free, adopted, grafted in. This belief is familiar; this language is not strange to you.

Oh, but do not let yourself forget this! God’s kindness to us is twofold: not only did he choose to speak that Word, he has taken pains to relay it to the farthest edges of the world, even to you and me.
