It is very easy to get caught up in our own little lives and to forget the huge masses of humanity that live in other parts of the world. The following numbers were emailed to me today, and they are really something to think about:
According to the World Christian Encyclopedia, there are approximately 1 billion Muslims, over 650 million Hindus, over 300 million Buddhists, over 200 million followers of Chinese folk religion, in addition to the world's 1.6 billion nominal Christians.
There are a LOT of people out there who are in darkness, and a lot of people who need our help and prayers. Even though Christianity is the largest "religion" in the world (at 1.6 billion people), a lot of those people just call themselves "Christians" but never go to church and never pick up a Bible. For many people it is just a "cultural" thing.
There are more people alive today than ever before. That also means there is more of an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people than ever before.
Let us pray for open doors!
