Cultural distance

The vital passage in the first chapter of Acts is so central – where Jesus refers His disciples to the worldwide scope of God’s concern —

 But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:8

If it were not for this passage and all the other passages in the Bible which support it, ministry like Partners International would not be here today.

Any Brahmin, for example, who becomes a follower of Christ and who begins to understand the Bible will soon realize, whether it is entirely clear before or not, that they now belong to a world family within which there are many ethnic groups and tongues – indeed, according to the Book of Revelation, this kind of diversity will continue right down to the end of time.
