I’m going to say it straight: If you are a believer and you are not actively participating in fulfilling the Great Commission, you are not obeying the Lord’s calling on your life.
Discipleship is more than just another church program. Jesus Christ has established discipleship as the method by which He plans to fulfil His mission to grow His church.
Do you have a purpose that shapes your decisions and priorities in life? Chuck Swindoll reminds us that we’ve been given a Great Commission, and our commitment to that mission should supersede every other goal. Be inspired to press forward in the work of evangelism.
Let’s focus our attention on what the Lord said in His Great Commission in Matthew 28:16–20 and learn what it means to live as a true disciple.
Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” But the world has almost seven billion people...where do we start? One person at a time. Our neighbour, our co-worker, our friend—the people we connect with every day are the one’s we’re called to reach.
Something happens when you know your father is watching and smiling. It changes your whole lifestyle. What if we lived like God our Father is watching and smiling? Would anything change?
As followers of our Lord, we believe He leads us in a certain direction in pursuit of a precise goal. His leading is unmistakably clear. Not necessarily logical or explainable, but clear.
When we feel fear we tend to look inward. But a self-centred focus can keep us from experiencing the peace God’s presence brings.
Please remember—your age is not a mistake…nor an oversight…nor an afterthought. The command to multiply your faith in the lives of others often occurs most effectively when you’re older.
Join Chuck Swindoll in his Easter message, As Dawn Arrived…He Arose, and allow the light of Christ’s resurrection to give you hope today. Remember that “weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning” (Psalm 30:5).
