Can you hear it? The world is calling. Not a call of temptation, but a call of desperation. All of creation groans and waits in eager expectation to be redeemed. Deep in the heart of all peoples of the world is an urge to return to their true home to be reunited with the Father. The world is crying out and still waits for a response. Paul asked the believers in Rome: "How are they to believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?" The same question is before you and I today. The world is calling. How will you respond?
