God has provided us with the unprecedented means through modern technology to distribute the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a global level. While the message of Christ has remained the same throughout the ages, current media technology affords us the opportunity to share His Word - the Good News Gospel to all nations as directed in Jesus' own words. These words " go and make disciples of all the nations" Matthew 28:19 is as relevant today as it was two thousand years ago.
In the recent marriage of Internet technology with television capabilities, the door to inter-active (two way) global communication has never been more pronounced or more powerful than it is today. A new threshold has been opened to mankind and with it numerous new and dynamic possibilities. So what will we make of these opportunities? The answers lies in taking our God-given talents, abilities, knowledge and gifts and use them for His purposes and His plan for mankind. GNBM.org is an organization of believers that is faith based, Holy Spirit led, and Jesus centered ready, willing, and able to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to all nations.
Our Divine Assignment
These were Jesus' last words before his departure from earth and ascension into heaven. This has been His standing orders found in the Bible- a commission to his disciples to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ - baptizing new believers and teaching them to obey everything he commanded. The Bible is the source of our Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Throughout the ages, this mandate has stood and withstood the test of time for all nations. For the gift of salvation never ceases. As current day Disciples of Jesus Christ it continues to be our assignment and purpose in life. For these words came before our existence and will continue after our existence on earth. Any true believer who grasps what the Christian life is really all about desires to fulfill God's plan for their life. And all followers are assigned the task of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each of us have been bestowed with certain gifts and talents, and as we continue on our journey as believers our purpose in His plan becomes more clearly defined. We are called to be set apart and we belong to Jesus Christ.
If you are a believer who belongs to Jesus Christ and surrenders to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, then you are a true disciple of Christ. True disciples allow Christ to live His life through them. Christ warned us that this is a costly position and to consider ahead of time what is involved. It becomes a matter of surrender to the love of our Heavenly Father. This is a surrender that surpasses all other relationships in our lives, all other needs and desires. A complete surrender of our life.
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brother and sisters - yes, even his own life - he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26 (NIV) "Hate" is a strong word; the Greek bible translation actually means "to love less." What all this means is that in order to be true disciples of Jesus Christ our love for Him surpasses our attachments to the most precious things in our life and we obey Him even at the cost of being misunderstood. This complete surrender is faith in His will for our lives here and in eternity and our reward is greater than we can possibly imagine.
It is not about "me," it is about something far greater than myself, it is about my obedience to God and His Master Plan. God will never ask us to do something contrary to scripture or inconsistent with Jesus' life. The assignment He gives us may be misunderstood by the eyes of the world, but if Holy Spirit led it will be compatible with biblical teaching and God's will.
We are to ask ourselves, "To what am I attached?" There is nothing wrong with enjoying relationships or belongings as long as possessions and emotional attachment do not supersede our Heavenly Father in importance. The question is, "Are we led by our material needs and desires or are we led by our divine Creator?"
We are Disciples for Christ and in this Commission we must be available to do whatever God says and to go wherever He directs, regardless of what His choice may be. Detached from the world and attached to Christ - not to possessions, ideologies, or relationships.
