The Great Commission

Hey guys, I thought I might share something I have been thinking about lately. Genesis begins with God's blessing to humanity to be fruitful and multiply in the earth. Matthew's Gospel ends with Christ's command to go in His authority and teach all nations to obey His commands. His message message was one of Good News of great joy which would be to all people! His Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit has come and we can enter into it today!

Yes there was an original sin, but also an original blessing! Christ ensured that we can still enjoy that blessing!

  • Hey there, dear brother, it's great to see you again. I recall your handle from years ago. And I recall your sound words.    :)

    Unfortunately so it seems, in today's world the Great Commission is becoming the great omission. Many churches have little or no emphasis on the subject. 

    But surely Christ's final message must have a profound meaning. His final word to go with the Gospel and that His presence would be with us.

    Worse still... The very nature of the Gospel is good news. So why would we - how could we withhold it? Why would we need to be commanded to share it?

    Yet worse still... This is one issue that should unite and motivate the whole body of Christ. Yet this is seldom seen.

    We can criticize others but in the end will those of a non-institutional church persuasion do any better? 

    What is wrong? What is missing? Does it matter?
