William Carey began his missionary efforts to India in 1792. He likened his mission to a miner penetrating into a deep mine, which had never been explored, with no one to guide. He said to Andrew Fuller and John Ryland and his other pastor friends: “I will go down, if you will hold the rope.” And John Ryland reports: “He took an oath from each of us, at the mouth of the pit, to this effect—that ‘while we lived, we should never let go of the rope.’” (Peter Morden, Offering Christ to the World, p. 167).

October 5, 2015

The following outline and discussion questions have been prepared to accompany my weekend sermon on October 3/4, “Worship and Missions: The Great Connection” (Psalm 67). The questions can be used for discussion in small groups or for personal reflection.


  1. Nations = Peoples (vv. 3–5)
  2. God’s aim is to win worshippers from every tribe and tongue and nation
  3. The story behind Bethlehem’s missions history

Main Point: God has mercifully invaded Bethlehem and given us a passion for his great missionary purpose.

A Peek at the Desiring God Board

Published by: Sam Crabtree
June 5, 2015

At a recent Desiring God board meeting we reviewed the following: last year we asked God for 29.5 million visits to the website. He gave 35.7 million. At that time we debated at some length whether we should ask for a 20% increase, and he gave us a 45% increase. (Jonathan Parnell’s blog post Why Homosexuality Is Not Like Other Sins saw over one million pageviews.)
