The Great Commission

Matthew 28:18-20. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:  and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

I really don’t know what I can say that gives this command of Jesus’ any more clarity than it already has. Our commission as believers is clear:  We are to understand that Jesus Christ is the ruler of the heavens and the earth; that He has all the power of the Godhead conferred upon Him.

Because He is God, we are to spread that good news to every corner of the earth, teaching, baptizing, preaching, sharing the gospel until He returns to take us to heaven to live with Him forever.

And wherever we go, He will be with us until the world ends.


And this, then, is the final post in our study of the Gospel of Matthew.  I pray it has encouraged you, blessed you, and that you have learned something new that will continue to fill your hearts and minds with the great love of our wonderful Savior.
