The Covington Church of Christ is blessed to be a Christian family who understands the importance of mission work.
In Matthew 28:18-20 it is evident that we are called upon by Jesus Himself to spread the gospel…
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.
Then in John 4:34-38 we can also read that it is time to lift up our eyes and see that the fields are white for harvest…
Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest?’ Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.
Finally, it is also evident that we can all help. This is one of the many things that make being a Christian so wonderful. Within a family our talents are many – within God’s family our talents are limitless. Use your own unique gifts to encourage our mission workers and mission points. Cards, letters, phone calls, emails, visits and especially prayer are greatly appreciated. Use your talents!! Check out Romans 12:4-8.
For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
