30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who wins souls is wise.
Souls for Christ in Every Nation
Go make disciples of all nations
The Great Commission is the way of life for true Christians
Matthew 28:18-20 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go [a]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, 20 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.
Let’s gospel together
Understanding the meaning behind The Great Commission…
The Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20 Matthew 28:18-20 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” The word Commission in the dictionary means; an instruction, command, or duty given to a person or group of people. This a formal process of committing a directive or command with an aim of executing the strategy. The Great Commission was part of a culmination of Christ’s ministry on earth, and an intersection of dynamics, which happened right after His resurrection from the dead on the third day, setting the stage for the Introduction of the Church on earth. Jesus met with the eleven disciples on the mountainside and issued a formal directive regarding the establishment of the Church, and how the disciples were to execute the mission of expanding The Kingdom. It is imperative to note that the great Commission became formal ahead of the day of Pentecost. Jesus had already instructed His disciples to assemble onto the mountainside in galilee and wait for Him during the time when He was going through crucification. After He arose from the dead, The Lord proceeded to the mountaintop where he found the eleven disciples waiting for Him like He had commanded them, in preparation to the formal commissioning of the gospel unto the Church. Hence, The Great Commission; the directive which was not only misional and strategic in spiritual scope but that which also gave the Church formal authority and spiritual mandate it needed to go into the harvest field and be fruitful. Jesus divided the Great Commission in different parts; 1. He said; Go 2. Make disciples of all the nations 3. Baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and The Holy Spirit, 4. Teaching them (those who have been baptized) everything that Jesus had commanded them, in other words, the disciples must be taught The Word, and the Lord would guarantee His presence to the end.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. You will be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”
