Luke 4:43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.
Jesus came to preach the kingdom of God. He came to take it to other cities, not just Jerusalem or Bethlehem. Jesus came to preach the gospel to the world. His thought was the next city, the next town. He was sent for that purpose.
If I can see that God sent Jesus to preach, to announce the kingdom of God, then I must ask myself how that affects me. I should gather that I too am sent. There are plenty of verses that make that extra clear. We are to take the gospel to the world. It is the next city, other cities.
Do I even consider others than those that I love and live with? Do I realize that we as a people and me as an individual have been sent to tell others of what Jesus did on the cross? Is my church trying to do anything to get the gospel to the world?
