In Genesis 24, Abraham sends a servant back to the land he had come from to find a wife for his daughter. Well, the servant comes back with Rebecca, and booyah, the two get married and have twins, Jacob and Esau. Then Jacob gets married and has 12 sons and within a few hundred years Abrahams descendants have multiplied from one son to millions of people. This couldn’t happen though unless Rebecca had been added to the family. The servant had to go get her. Now then, this is how a church is meant to grow. We are the servants of God who go back to the land where we came from (do you remember that place?) and we bring back to God’s house just one person to join the family. Just one. And this one may get two. Then, the next two might get twelve and as time goes on it isn’t long until millions have been reached because you went and got one person and brought him/her to church. Ok, so now, it is the great commission. When was the last time you went and got one? Well, don’t keep Jesus all for yourself, there is plenty of redemption for all of mankind.
