Infographics can say a lot with only a few inches of pixels, conveying both raw information as well as analysis and perspective.
They especially work well in situations where you want to compare and contrast two things. For example, here is an infographic comparing “geeks” and “nerds” (see it large here) — vital information you need to know in today’s fast-paced world.
On a more serious note, an infographic with mind-blowing numbers appeared this week. It depicts the entire globe spread out flat. Then, it highlights one circle patch of the Asian continent — not even all of Asia.
Wait, why am I describing it with words? Here is the graphic:
Take a look at that highlighted circle. Since there are approximately 7.1 billion people on the entire planet, there are about 3.83 billion people living in the circle (51% of the total population). Such density of people!
Look at those nations. Call them by name (this is where all those rote-memory geography lessons kick in, or not). How many of those nations have even a strong minority of Christians living within their borders?
Not sure? Take a look here:
None! None of these nations are colored with any of the “Christianity colors.”
So, here is your assignment for the rest of your life. If you are a Christian, you’ve got to heed the call of Christ to make disciples of all nations — to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).
With 3.83 billion people mostly non-Christian, we all have marching orders.
Pray. Send. Go.
We all are to PRAY for the global spread of the Gospel. Most of us here in affluent parts of the world can financially support the SEND forth of people who will take the Gospel. And, those who get sent are the ones who GO.
Pray, Send, and Go — and by God’s grace and for His glory, many of that 3.83 billion will hear of Christ and believe unto salvation.
Now, that’s an infographic with Gospel implications!
