The Great Commission

GUWG Go YellowWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Jesus’ time on earth is nearing its end. Today, he gives his disciples what is commonly called the Great Commission:

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

(Matthew 28:16-20)

Let’s look at our 2 BIG Questions:

1. Who exactly is Jesus?

He’s the one to whom “all authority in heaven and on earth has been given.” There’s no more authority than that.

2. What exactly does he want us to do?

Some of Jesus’ disciples worshiped him. Some doubted. I humbly suggest you do the former, not the latter.

Jesus’ call to action is clear. He wants his disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything he commanded. Again, that’s: Go. Make Disciples. Baptize. Teach.

And as we go, we’re never ever alone. Jesus will be with us always, to the very end.
