Go with Christ


I recently read an article by Mark Carver called, Some Thoughts on Go and Make Disciples of All Nations” It really got me thinking about this whole realm of discipleship and following Christ.  The great commission comes from Matthew 28: 19-20:  Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

All Christians are confronted with the command of Jesus found in the Great Commission that says, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” Most of us have thought through this verse. It is among the last recorded words of Jesus and therefore carry more weight. In this command there are three questions presented whose answers provide the framework for the task to which Jesus has called us to. Think about these verses, and we’ll take a look at some questions that need to be asked over the next few days.

Be wise today and always – Go with Christ.
