“We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.” ― John R.W. Stott
The Great Commission is the command of the resurrected Jesus the Messiah to His disciples to spread His teachings to all the nations of the world.
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, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. -- Matthew 28:19-20
This command from Jesus is significant because it is a personal instruction for Christians to have a profound faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus calls every Jesus follower to step out in faith and spread the Gospel message. It is faith in action! Those who obey this command of Jesus find their spiritual lives changed forever! It could be sharing Jesus with a neighbor, taking a short-term mission trip, or even could even mean moving to another country to reach the people there. It could be sharing the Hope found in Jesus with less fortunate children down the street or in a town two hours away. Wherever we are GOING, as Christians, we are commanded to share the Gospel with a global perspective (make disciples of all nations).
Wherever we GO, every Christian is commanded to share the Gospel with a global perspective.
As a faithful follower of Jesus, can you answer these questions?
Where has He called you to go?
Who has God put on your heart to share the gift of salvation?
What steps, big or small, can you take, with the knowledge that Jesus will be by your side, "to make disciples of all the nations"?
Did you know you and your team can honor the Great Commission in obedience and with a global perspective by joining us for a week of Team Ministry in Mexico?
