Fulfilling the Great Commission
Mr 16:15 And He said unto them, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.
Maybe the foremost evangelist of our times is Arthur Blessitt. Since the 1960’s Arthur has walked the world with a ninety pound cross on his back sharing the good news of Jesus.
He is in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most miles walked by any human.
If you have not read his books, “A Walk with the Cross,” or “Arthur a Pilgrim” I recommend them.
I don’t think that any twentieth century Christian impacted my life as much as Arthur Blessitt.
During his journeys through the jungles, when there were no people, Arthur would preach to the animals.
His reasoning is that Jesus said that we must preach the gospel to every creature. And I believe that Arthur is right.
A few days back the streets of Nyack were bustling, due to the gorgeous lows 80’s weather.
Many folks walk their beautiful dogs through the sidewalks.
One girl was walking an unusually beautiful dog. As a matter of fact it was a rare breed. She said that the purchase price ranged from 900.00 to 2000.00.
After petting the little guy, Mary asked the girl, “would it be okay of I pray a blessings of health over your dog?”
The girl’s answer was, “Sure.”
So on went Mary asking Jesus to bless her dog with long life and health.
The girl smiled, thanked us and left.
