Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.
Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV
I woke up last night with this portion of scripture on my mind. Jesus speaking to me.
Do you want to know God better? Do you want to know His will for your life? He reveals Himself in His Word (the bible). He is revealing His will for your life and mine today.
This is what is known as the great commission. It is God’s commandment to every follower of Jesus Christ!
God has a specific plan for your life. Regardless of what that plan is it includes sharing your faith with other people. It includes teaching other people the things Jesus teaches you!
The commandment to go and make disciples of all the nations is not for the spiritual elite. It is for people who know the love of God. It is for people who love the Lord.
The names and faces are always changing. Today Reverend so and so is sharing the Word of God. Tomorrow it’s Pastor what’s his name. Someday it may be you. The message remains the same. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life!
When Jesus fed the five thousand He asked His disciples, “How many loaves do you have,” they answered, “Five and two fish”. Jesus took what they had and multiplied it. Jesus used it to meet the needs of the multitude.
Jesus is sending you out to meet the needs of the multitudes today!
Are you willing to go? You do not need go very far. You do not need very much. Make what you have available to the Lord. Jesus will use it meet needs in amazing ways!
Go in the name of the risen Lord. Follow His commands. Go where Jesus sends you. Speak the words Jesus gives you.
Make disciples for the Lord of Lords and King of Kings today and every day!
