Just before His ascension into heaven, Jesus delivered a mandate to His followers commonly known as “The Great Commission.” Our goal is to discover how this decree from Jesus applies to life today.
The Great Commission
When the time drew near for the resurrected Jesus to ascend into heaven, His followers wondered, What Now? Then Jesus appeared and gave them a clear mission—proclaim the Gospel in all the world in the power of the Spirit.
When the Spirit came, the apostles heralded Jesus’ good news in Jerusalem and many people from all corners of the earth embraced their message. In doing so, they formed a magnetic community as the Lord added to their number day by day.
Join Chuck Swindoll as he walks us through these scenes in this four-part series on the Great Commission. We’ll learn how the Spirit still leads us today as we embody Jesus’ teachings and proclaim Him as both Lord and Saviour.
The reason we place our trust in Jesus is not to escape the horrific destiny of hell. According to Scripture, following Jesus means that we’re in a lifetime process of becoming more like Him. Be listening when Chuck Swindoll helps us remain focused on our primary mission.
Jesus poured His life into 12 men, teaching, coaching, warning, and mentoring. And when He ascended into heaven, these disciples were not abandoned! The Spirit of God took over and became the fuel they desperately needed.
Many of us can readily recreate a mental picture of the church we grew up in…the building, the people, and the preaching. Chuck Swindoll invites us to go back much further, to examine an original snapshot of the very first church.
