Christ commanded Christians to go out into the world and make disciples of all nations. It’s an inspiring thought, but have you ever thought about the sheer numbers involved in bringing the Gospel to the entire world’s population? Is the Great Commission an impossible task?
In a short but interesting essay over at Uplook Ministries, Jabe Nicholson crunches the numbers and concludes that the Great Commission isn’t as unrealistic an undertaking as you might think. (And of course, regardless of how the numbers work out, it’s worth remembering that when God is involved, words like “impossible” have a way of losing their punch.)
