go-SPEL or GO-spel or GOSPEL?

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature”.~Mark 16:15

Which is the correct spelling in the title? Are you LIVING the correct spelling? If you to the “g-o” out of gospel all you have is a “spel”. It is no wonder then that many evangelical Christians are turning from Christ because there is no go. This produces a stagnant Christianity. If we focus on the “g-o”, we lose our balance as well. We need to look at is a whole. In short, Gospel is Jesus!

The definition of gospel is the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. As a family, we would love to go to the foreign mission field but in my heart I know that when and if we go it will be a life commitment. This is very scary to me. It would be/is so much easier to support those in missions. Yet doesn’t God call us for all of our lives to be reaching out right where we are?

Why is that we feel good after we’ve given money to support missions? If we give 1% or 20% or even more, God has called every one of us to use our money for His glory and furthering His kingdom. He also has called us to reach out to the people around us wherever that might be.

“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.” ~Matt. 16:25

I’m curious how you, my readers, fulfill the great command “to go and tell”. I’d love to hear from you!
