...to make Lottie Moon a priority this year. In fact I challenged people to give their largest Christmas gift to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. There are a host of reasons why I can say to you that the LMCO is important. But I will only say this, the "All nations" part of the great commission I believe can best be reached cooperatively. If you are not a misisonary then what better way to spread the gospel to those who are unreached than giving funds to the International Mission Board.
So why should you make this gift a priority? For one thing, if there are people in America who do not know Christ it is in spite of the churches on every corner. In contrast, there are over 6000 people groups that have no access whatsoever to the gospel.
For the second year in a row, my largest Christmas gift, by quite a large margin, will go to Lottie Moon. Nobody I know truly has any needs that are more important than obedience to the great commission. I hope you will consider giving your largest gift to Lottie as well.
