In preparation for this article, I checked the Worldmeters last night at 11:00 P.M. for the world population and I found that there was an estimated 7,654,942,810 people in the world!
That in itself is mind boggling! Just to give you a point of reference for the magnitude of the number, one billion, it would require forty thousands trips around the world to equal one billion miles.
The last time I checked on the birth rate for today there was 377,768 born and the death rate was 156,470. That works out to almost 5 people born per second and almost 2 people die second.
We can see why Evangelism and World Harvest are literally a moment by moment, second by second mandate that must take more of a priority in the believer's life or billions people will face the possibility of not coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus!
Charles Spurgeon said, "If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms around their knees, Let no one go there unwarned or unprayed for."
Church, we have a tremendous opportunity to join with other churches in Tampa and with reviveFlorida to take the Gospel to the streets with great expectation for a spiritual awakening in our city. May the Lord prepare the hearts of those who we will meet.
