The Great Command…
Some call it, The Great Commission…
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.” Matthew 28:18-20.
1) Jesus Reminds His People Of Their Purpose – vs 18
God is telling all that confess Him as Lord to remember why they have done so and He is reminding us of the authority given to Him. It is by this authority that He commands us and guides us.
2) Jesus Gives The Command To Go & Make Disciples Of All Nations – vs 19
Disciples are made, not born. They are an ever work in progress of the Divine Plan of God. To be a Disciple you must first surrender your agenda and accept the Plan God has for you. God said for His people to not neglect anyone of any race. The people of God must never show favoritism toward anyone due to the level of the wealth or lack of.
3) Jesus Reminds His People That They Are Not Alone – vs 19
Through the command of baptism Jesus refreshes the minds of His people. He lets them know that baptism is a symbolic way of being born again. He also brings in the Trinity of God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit. In doing this, He was reminding His people that they are not alone.
4) Jesus Tells Us To Teach What We Have Learned From God – vs 20
We as the People of God must always be ready to share our Faith with others. We are called by God to teach or share what we know and believe to be the truths of Gods Holy Word.
5) Jesus Reminds Us That He Is Always Here – vs 20
It is a promise from God that He will walk with us in this life. It is comforting to know that He our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is ALWAYS here for us. Remembering these Truths found in the very Word Of God will help us to live a life that God intended.
