Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you—-, Matthew 28:19-20
Sometimes we forget what we’re suppose to be doing. We get distracted from what is most important and spend our time majoring on minors. For the Christian there should never be any doubt about where our focus should be. David Jeremiah said,”Jesus spoke these words over 2,000 years ago. While the disciples did not scatter into the world immediately, once they began to be persecuted, they and the Word spread quickly. Since then, millions of disciples have taken the Gospel into their neighborhoods and around the world.
It is easy to put the early disciples on a pedestal, thinking they were somehow smarter, better equipped, or more courageous to share the Gospel than we are today. The truth is that they were ordinary men equipped and guided by God. They understood, just as David did when he fought Goliath, that the result of their efforts did not depend on them, but on God.
Today, we have the same commission that Christ assigned to His disciples. While His command may seem daunting, we have the same God with us, and He makes successful evangelism possible. Our only responsibility is to remain focused on Him. We can be confident in Him. He has the power to take our mustard seed faith and move mountains. Let’s remain committed to letting our light shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).”
The famous missionary, Hudson Taylor once said,”God uses men who are weak and feeble enough to lean on Him.” The same God who saved you will use you to save others. Our commission never changes. Reaching others for Christ should be our constant and continuing work in the world.
