I’ll never forget as a high school history teacher, teaching on World War I. One of the things that intrigued me the most was our government’s mobilization of the people at home. One of the great slogans was Wheatless, Meatless, Heatless. In those days, we had Meatless Mondays and Wheatless Wednesdays. In WWI alone, 13 million families signed a pledge to go Meatless and Wheatless to win a war they would never see! They became the great ‘unseen force’ sending the troops on their way to win a war.
Listen to Paul, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?” Romans 10:14-15 Here, Paul gives us one of the great Kingdom principles, “How can they preach unless they are SENT?” He gives a clear calling for Senders!
