What is the Open Door Project?
The idea for the Open Door Project comes from 1 Corinthians 16:9a where Paul writes, For a great door and effectual is opened unto me. As in the time of Paul, so also today God has an open door for every person He is calling to the mission field. We are emphasizing eleven out of an endless number of open doors around the world. Our prayer is that God will use the information we are presenting to speak to many hearts about full-time missionary service. An open door represents an opportunity. We are praying that many Christians will respond to the opportunities that we are highlighting in this project.
How can I be involved in the Open Door Project?
First, please pray that God will use this new project to send many more missionaries around the world. Christ has asked us to pray that the Lord of the harvest would send forth labourers into his harvest (Matthew 9:38). As we pray for additional missionary personnel, we can be assured that we are praying according to God's will. Second, please lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest (John 4:35). As you see the need, consider what God would have you do about the many open doors all around the world. Yes, there are many adversaries (1 Corinthians 16:9b); however, when the Lord opens a door, no man can shut it (Revelation 3:8). Perhaps God has opened one of these great and effectual doors just for you.
