Muslim Missions — A great task with many hindrances — part 3

Why we must go to the Muslims:

1.      Christ died for them    The Bible says in 1 Timothy 2:6 that He gave Himself a ransom for all.  Do we truly believe he died for ALL? Do we live like we do?

2.      God wants them all to be saved — The Bible says in 2 Peter 3:9 that He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”.

3.      He has commanded us to go – Did not God command us in Mark 16:15 to, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature?”  Did every creature include the Muslims of this world?  Most live like they weren’t included.

I have been blessed to be called of God to work in a country where the majority of people are Muslims.  We have seen firsthand that God is saving Muslims.  Four out of our six young preachers were former Muslims. 

Our mission, Macedonia World Baptist Missions, is blessed to have twelve missionary families reaching Muslims with the Gospel message.  But we need so many more with a passion for the Muslims.

Let’s wake up and see the opportunity that God has given us even here in America to reach the Muslims with the Gospel.  Instead of complaining about them, let’s get out and win them!

I have heard much talk about the Mosque being built near ground zero.   I was wondering how many Christians have talked about this but have never prayed for the Muslims to come to Christ.  We talked about Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, but have we prayed for them?  I know that our military must do what it has to do to protect freedom but truly where is our heart?  Do we really care?

Here are some remarks that I have heard through the years:

  • I would rather go to hell than to go to the Muslims.
  • I don’t care if they all go to hell (from an evangelist who preaches all over America).
  • I don’t envy you.
  •  Why do you want to go to the Muslims. My simple response, “If I don’t go, who will”?

What are you doing to reach out to this needy group of people that God loves?  Actually I should say what are you doing to reach sinners (that includes everybody)?
