Missional Movements from East and West

“And I say to you that many shall come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.”Matthew 8:11

I love this picture that Jesus shared with the Roman centurion who was an outsider.

Jesus is welcoming him into His kingdom and indicates that there will be many in the kingdom from both east and west!

As an outsider myself from the west, it’s a beautiful reality that I’ve been welcomed into the kingdom. I can picture myself reclining with Jesus at the table with so many others from east and west.

It is my prayer that many multitudes of people from both east and west will follow Jesus and enter into His kingdom!

Will you pray that this picture Jesus saw of the future kingdom will become reality?

Will you do your part to invite those you meet from east and west to follow Jesus?
