James 1:22 says to be doers of the Word and not hearers only. God could have chosen to use any method he wanted to reach the world with His gospel. However, Christ’s last command makes it clear that the method He chose was to use people to reach people.

You have a crucial part to play in the greatest story ever. One of the best ways you can have a heart for the world is to actually do God’s work and join Him on mission by going. Most science classes come with a lab. The reason is because there is a great deal of value and knowledge to be gained from experiencing something firsthand.

In the
same way, many principles and truths are caught, not taught. If you want to impact the world with your life, then it’s not simply about understanding more facts or having more knowledge, but it’s when you go and experience God’s word and God’s world by participating in God’s work!
