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.
If Easter was the most exciting day of the disciples’ lives, quite likely the ascension was the most exciting day of Jesus’ earthly life. He had finished His mission. There was just one thing. Jesus’ departure opened the door to one great risk: being forgotten.
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.
How long would it take to evangelize the world if we were to actually do what Jesus said and if each year every disciple made another disciple who made another disciple?
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.
