David Platt says out of the 12,000 people groups in the world, 6,000 have not received an invitation into God’s family yet. It’s going to take those of us who are already a part of God’s fold, to invite them.
“We have brothers and sisters whom God has promised to adopt as sons and daughters, and our Father is sending us to them to bring them into the family,” Platt says.
In order to do this, though, we’re going to need to trust God not only with our salvation, but with our everyday lives. Platt likens going on the mission field and inviting others into God’s family to signing over a blank check to God. You are trusting him with your life, your family, your future and allowing him to do whatever he wants with you. That takes a lot of trust.
However, Platt reasons, “If you can trust God to save you, then you can trust God to lead you.”
