New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Great Commission
16 But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful.
18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “ All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
That is QUITE a commission, given to us by our Lord and Savior. They were worshipping Him, yet He had a different purpose in their assembly: To get the message across that we are to spread the Word. His Word. The story of why He left Heaven to
dwell among men and to show them that the Omnipotent Creator sought a relationship with us.
He KNEW our shortcomings. He KNEW our propensity towards failure, He KNEW that He was giving this message, telling us to reach out to the very likes of the people who crucified Him on a wooden, Roman cross, between two theives and that had subjected Him to every punishment and humiliation they could come up with; Yet He didn’t seek vengeance, nor did He lay out exclusions as to who would qualify for this Grace. He told them and us to reach, preach, and teach.
Today we celebrate that gift of Grace; We lift up His name, worshipping Him, and we
seek earnestly to learn more about Him to share with others!
Let’s Get WITH it!
