Matthew 28: 18-20
Today, we have the “great commission”. For the follower of Christ, it is our marching orders for us. There are 4 commands: Go, means “as you go through life” make disciples, means tell others about the hope we have in Christ.
Baptizing in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Spirit. And then, “teach” them true doctrine. Oh but then… there is a promise! “I am with you always”!! Can you believe that!? Christ is “with you”! How? By His Spirit. Christ sent His Spirit to indwell us. To occupy us. To live with us. And that is how we can have the “fruit of His Spirit” in Gal 5:22-23, but only if we submit to Him. How us your submission today? Are you listening to Him? Let me encourage you this morning.. Ask Him to rise up in you, and then submit to Him. I promise others will notice, and that will give opportunities to obey this command. He is worthy. Serve Him well today!
Verse 18. “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20. teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
