The Great Commission.

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:16-20).

We need to spread the word of God to all the nations including here in the United States. It is the gospel — it is good news! A large number of American Christians don’t seem to be putting into practice God’s instruction to engage in the great commission. Why? Perhaps because too many of us only practice cultural Christianity. We need to be Christians 24/7 not just on Sundays. We must share the word of God with others every week at work, during conversations in the mall, sometimes even in elevator conversations.  

We are called to spread God’s love with others. Let’s not forget that in many parts of the world, Christians are being persecuted  for spreading the gospel. In fact, many go to Jail in order to spread Christ’s word.  The minimum that we should do is to do our part and engage in the great commission.  

So, next time that you visit a coffee shop… take the initiative and speak with others about God’s love. This is out call.
