International (MNN) — With Resurrection Sunday around the corner, what keeps you from taking part in Christ's last command?
In Matthew 28:16-20, right before Jesus ascended into heaven, He told his apostles to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."
It's known today as the Great Commission.
"That was spoken at a time when there were about 200 million people on Planet Earth. Today, there are 7 billion," says Ron Hutchcraft of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries.
That's about 35 times the amount of people that were around when Jesus gave the Great Commission. Telling this many people about salvation through Christ seems like a daunting task.
But, Hutchcraft says, "In that world with those daunting numbers, in that same generation, God has given us tools…to get to everyone everywhere, that have never existed before."
He's talking about the ever-present global platforms of the Internet and social media.
"The delivery systems are coming at the same time there's so many people to deliver the Good News of Jesus to," Hutchcraft states.
RHM is using these tools to bring people "where Christ is presented in non-religious language that anybody from any background can understand."
Using social media platforms like Facebook, RHM presents the message of salvation in terms everyone can relate to. Hutchcraft says they use Facebook-friendly language to direct people to YouTube videos, other social networking sites, and Web sites that present the Gospel in today's context.
"It is possible today to be, in a sense, present everywhere with the Good News of Jesus," says Hutchcraft.
