In the 19th Century, it was commonly said that “the sun never sets on the British Empire.” Here at the Hour of Power with Bobby Schuller, we don’t have an empire, but we do have an international presence. The Hour of Power is broadcast in Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland. When it is the evening in the United States, the day is just getting started in Hong Kong. When the work day starts at home, offices are preparing to close in Germany and the Netherlands. The sun truly never sets on the Hour of Power.
Having an international presence is important to us because it was important to Jesus. In Matthew 28:19, Jesus exhorts his followers to “make disciples of all nations.” This means exactly what it says – that followers of Jesus Christ are called to proclaim the Gospel around the globe. And so we never grow tired of telling people around the world about how God loves them, affords them dignity and wants to see them thrive. We may have different cultures, languages, and customs but we are united under the banner of Jesus Christ. We are one big family with Christ as the head. So welcome to the family, no matter where you live or watch!
