The Great Commission2

Matthew 28:19-20Go 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, 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.

This command from Christ is commonly referred to as the Great Commission, however, in many believers lives it’s a lot less than great; it’s somewhere below mediocrity.

We have become a community of “keepers of the aquarium” as opposed to fishers of men. Today, read again this instruction given directly by Christ to those who would be His disciples and ask God to aid you in recommitting yourself to this assignment.

Remember, building the Kingdom is why God brought us into His family. Determine to be that disciple who God will address as trustworthy or profitable because of your attention to His goals of winning the lost, discipling the found and sending the disciple.

Develop relationships that offer you a platform upon which you can share His grace, mercy and loving kindness.

Peace and blessings!

    What an awesome word today, thank You Lord for such a great reminder. Lord show me today and everyday who You want me to share You with. Let The Great Commission be as important to me as it is important to You. Let me and all my Christian brothers and sisters step it up in our discipleship. Thank You Lord for such a wonderful Pastor, First Lady, and First Family that love You, and are obedient to Your word! In Jesus mighty and matchless name, Amen!

    Thank You Lord for giving me the desire to study your Word and giving me the privilege to serve in the Harvest Helpers Ministry at GCFI which prepares me to share the good news with family, friends and the world. Send us more partners so that they can experience the joy of preparing to share your Word outside of GCFI. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

    Amen
    It’s up to us to build the Kingdom. When a boss instructs us to do something we often do it without questions. I am determined to follow His command with unwavering devotion. In Scripture, there are not a lot of instances that Jesus doesn’t tell His disciples to “go”, but when He does it’s of the utmost importance.
