This Lord’s Day we will celebrate “Go Global” Sunday.  It is our special yearly emphasis on taking the good news of God’s grace to the far corners of the globe.

 

The basis for our global goal is the grace of God in Christ.  Because we have come to know His grace experientially, we are motivated to give generously and go courageously till all the world has had an opportunity to experience the same gift.

 

William Borden was heir to his family’s massive wealth.  As a young man he was already a millionaire.  His parents gave him a trip around the world as a graduation present from high school.  He was sixteen. 

 

He went to Yale University and there impacted his campus powerfully for Christ.  He eventually surrendered his future to become a missionary to Muslims and to “go global.”  He renounced the wealth and comforts that could have been his and set sail. 

 

He never made it there.  He died at 25 years of age of spinal meningitis, contracted in Cairo, as he studied Arabic.  When the news of William Borden's death was cabled back to the U.S., the story was carried by nearly every American newspaper.  "A wave of sorrow went round the world . . . Borden not only gave (away) his wealth, but himself, in a way so joyous and natural that it (seemed) a privilege rather than a sacrifice" wrote Mary Taylor in her introduction to his biography.  He had written in his Bible, “No retreat, no reserves, no regrets.”  God wants us to live that way as well.  He wants us to “go global” because his grace is global.
