"Go into all the world"

Posted on 13 Dec 2006 by .

The last will and testament of the Lord Jesus Christ before His departure into Heaven was "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature". The last words of a loved one are always very precious and if requests are made we usually would move Heaven and Earth to fulfil them.

The last request of Jesus has never been rescinded. Our Lord Jesus has issued a commission and not offered us a suggestion. It is not an optional extra, but a Divine command. It is in the imperative mood. His Majesty orders us to go and make disciples. It is no good singing 'worship His Majesty', if we are not prepared to obey His Majesty.

Mission is not a Christian hobby for certain enthusiasts - it is a task for all, and make no mistake about it - mission is a lifeboat ministry and not a showboat. Now although CTA is not a missionary organisation as such, one of our major ministries right from the beginning, has been to serve Christian missionary societies in producing for them films of the work that they are doing in various parts of the world, and to present to the churches of our land the challenge of what still needs to be done.

Looking back over the years we have had the privilege of producing nearly 100 such films taking CTA to most areas of the world. Locations have been varied and ranged from Europe both east and west, including two evangelistic films in their own language for both Bulgaria and the Czech Republic after the fall of communism. From South America to South East Asia and all in between including the hazards of the Congo Republic. Then last year we made a missionary film about our own country for UFM Worldwide entitled 'Islam in Great Britain Today'. It has been a great privilege to serve so many missionary organisations and we will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

We count it a privilege to stand with our missionary colleagues in producing materials that can back up and encourage their ministries in what are sometimes very difficult situations. So if you or your society are thinking about a film depicting and promoting the ministry that God has called you to engage in then why not contact us to see what we could offer.

A special word of thanks

Several months ago I sent out a special appeal to all of our prayer partners and supporters and those who use our free loan video library. We are thankful to God and to you that so many responded and sent in gifts.
