Give Light to Our World
Jesus gave a mission to His church in Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” One very effective method of Giving Light to Our World (GLOW) is a worldwide project of literature distribution where millions of pieces of literature, in various forms, are given away or sold to share the Bible’s message of hope. In April 2015, the Adventist Review magazine reported that GLOW, the pocket-sized tracts with titles such as “Can Dead People Talk?” and “Secrets of Mental Health,” had reached a milestone with the publication of 45 million copies in seven years. These little tracts are one way of distributing the gospel of Jesus Christ to a large number of people in an attractive and very affordable package.
How do you get started? Order your GLOW tracks or pocket literature today. Organize all your materials for evangelism in a plastic, durable, water proof container. Keep this box in your car and use the resources throughout the day to bless many people. Wherever you go, keep these resources in mind and listen as the Holy Spirit impresses you to share them.
Mrs. White shares the following story, which is fascinating and to the point: “The Duke of Wellington was once present where a party of Christian men were discussing the possibility of success in missionary effort among the heathen. They appealed to the duke to say whether in his judgment such efforts were likely to prove a success commensurate to the cost. The old soldier replied: Gentlemen, what are your marching orders? Success is not the question for you to discuss. If I read your orders aright, they run thus, ‘Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.’ Gentlemen, obey your marching orders.” (The Faith I Live By page 147)
