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.
Reflections on Today’s Verse
Christ’s authority stands out in particular in this passage (especially Matthew 28:16-20). This is the Christian’s comfort and strength. Its truths press upon us and demand to know what we are doing for the advance of the Kingdom.
The fish on your car may be doing more harm than good, and it’s likely not what Jesus had in mind in the Great Commission. We think we get ‘the great commission’ to make disciple, but ‘discipleship’ appears to be our great omission!
How are you participating in Christ’s Great Commission to take the Gospel to the nations? What is it costing you? Where is your sacrifice?
The church and Christian committed to the Great Commission will be judged on her ability to send and not her ability to gather. Go as a missionary or send a missionary. Either way, the Great Commission should cost you dearly. Look to the harvest. Go or Send!
I beg you to give yourself to the fulfilment of the Great Commission. So many have not yet heard.

Father, the harvest is white. Yet, we are so scared. I am so scared. Yet, there is more sweetness in this word your name, Father, than if we had ten thousand worlds. Father, from the security of our justification, the riches of our adoption and the hope of our future, we live unto you. What we know is we have a world that needs you. Embolden us. Empower us. And encourage us to share the Gospel. We want people to be saved! in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
