The Great Commission

Saturday, June 10, 2006

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
--Matthew 28:19

We are all called to take our Lord, His love and His message of salvation to others. In fact we're not called, we're commanded to do this. And as faithful soldiers (2 Timothy 4:1-2) of Christ, our Commander-in-Chief has given us our very clear instructions!

Many Protestants often refer to Matthew 28:19 as the Great Commission. Rightly so. It's not the great suggestion. It's not an option, but a clear command of our King of kings and our Commander-in-Chief.

And all of us, therefore, are called and commissioned to share the faith we have in Jesus Christ in a relational and natural way.
We don't have to be polished speakers or winning debaters or a trained theologians in order to share the faith to others.

We have been freed from a fatal disease that is called sin throught the healing power of a Doctor named Jesus. To keep this Good News to yourself would be one of the most selfish acts in the world.

By the power of His blood, which cleanses us from every sin, has changed our hearts. And because we have been transformed by the love and grace of God, we can and should tell others!
