"This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, whose will is that all sorts of men should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth."

(1 Timothy 2:3, 4)

It is Jehovah’s purpose to include people of all nations in his arrangement for worship. To that end, he has arranged for “everlasting good news” to be declared “to every nation and tribe and tongue and people.” (Revelation 14:6) Jesus said: “The field is the world.” (Matthew 13:38) What significance does that have for you and your immediate family? Not all are able to go to distant parts of the world to take the Kingdom message to others. Nevertheless, we may well be in a position to take this message to people from all parts of the earth who live in our territory. Are we alert to opportunities to witness to all sorts of people, not just those to whom we have preached for years? Why not make it your determination to reach out to others who have not yet received a thorough witness?—Romans 15:20, 21.
