"Charlotte" works with TWR in China. When she saw a book titled, "The Tribes That God Has Forgotten," she was reminded in her heart that God hasn't forgotten them. Today, let me remind you what Paul writes about Jesus in Colossians 1:15-20 (ESV):
"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross."
You see, Jesus hasn't forgotten anyone. Not only is He the creator of all, He also holds everything together, and that includes people! And let's not forget that this great Creator is also our Savior. Through "the blood of his cross," He is able to "reconcile to himself all things." And, in His sovereignty, Jesus choses to use His body, the Church, to carry this message of peace and reconcilliation--the Gospel--to the entire world. No, Jesus has not forgotten anyone. He knows who they are and where they are, and He's sending us to reach them. Let's go!
