Resurrection Directive

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:14-19; Luke 24:36-49

After Jesus's resurrection, he appears to the disciples and reveals to them their mission going forward. The Gospels of Matthew and Mark contain what we refer to as the "Great Commission."

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)

"And he said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.'" (Mark 16:15)

Luke tells us that Jesus opened the disciples' minds so that they could understand the scriptures. He then told them that "repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations" (Luke 24:47).

As 21st-century Christ followers, the Great Commission--the directive to proclaim Jesus to all people--absolutely applies to us. That means we are to be about the business of telling people about God's love for them by making Jesus Christ known to everyone around us.

Is it your practice to tell people (those you know and those you encounter) about Jesus? Who do you know that needs to hear about Jesus? Will you talk with them and invite them to church? Choosing to follow Jesus's directive could change their life forever! Tami
