From the Study
Jesus says in Matthew 22:37-39, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself” (HCSB). As followers of Christ, we must give our all so people can know the love of Jesus. That’s what being totally His requires: pouring ourselves out completely to be His heart, hands and voice — individually, as a church, as Southern Baptists working cooperatively to reach all the nations. We are part of the task to fulfill the Great Commission. And although Southern Baptists have been praying, giving and going for more than 160 years, the task is far from finished.
Christ tells us to be totally committed — first to love Him, then to love others as much as we love ourselves. We are to give all of our heart, soul and mind to being Christ-like. The ultimate goal: that every man, woman and child on this earth can know His saving grace. Southern Baptist missionaries can’t carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth without our full support. Through our giving, missionaries can concentrate their time and efforts on engaging the unreached with the Gospel. How much will you give to reach the ones who still do not know?
Think about what you spend on Christmas gifts for family and friends. Then consider giving your biggest gift to God through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®.
