Matthew 28:18-20 shares the words of Jesus, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Jesus is our authority. He calls us to make disciples of all nations. Jesus did not die for merely one ethnic group, even though He was called King of the Jews. Jesus’ Lordship extends around the whole world. To make disciples of all nations is to make disciples of Jesus in all people groups and ethnicities. Listen to this truth from Revelation 5:9-10,
And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.
If God calls us to make disciples of all peoples and He promises He will be with us, then there should be no question that Christians should be about reaching the unreached with the gospel. This does not mean every Christian should move overseas but it does mean every Christian should be praying for those who have not heard and believed in the truth of God’s Word. Therefore, I would like to share with you a video about the Somali people, an unreached people group (of approx. 17 million). By watching this 9-minute video, you can help get the gospel to these people. The video is in the Somali language so while you will not be able to understand, still watch it. From the images you can see the story of salvation being shared.
See, by simply watching this video, you have increased the likelihood that Somali speakers will see it as they are strategically targeted with a Facebook ad.
Yes, by simply watching this 9-minute video in Somali you will increase the likelihood that Somali speakers will see it as they are strategically targeted with a Facebook ad. In addition to watching this, would you please share it with other people? Grace and peace be with you!
