Top 10 Countdown: #4

We’re counting down the top ten Bible verses of all time, as determined by researchers with very large brains who analyze how often each verse is referenced.

Here’s VERSE #4:

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. (Matthew 28:19-20a)

Those were among Jesus’ last words here on earth. That’s what the “therefore” is there for — it sums up nicely Jesus’ game plan for his followers. That plan?


Heed Jesus’ call to action. Get off the couch and get in the game. Get real with the people in your life. Invite ’em to breakfast. Treat ’em to lunch. Listen to their stories. And then tell ’em yours. Start making disciples today. And remember that you’re never alone in this endeavor.

Here’s how Jesus concluded his above remarks:

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:20b)
