Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)
Through the final words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to his disciples at the time of His ascension, we were commissioned to pursue a great purpose as Christians. We therefore have a heavenly call to continue teaching the words of Jesus to as many as possible and win more souls to the eternal kingdom promised to all faithful followers of Christ.
How committed are we to this noble task of expanding the kingdom of God today? Just as the believers who were commissioned by Jesus worked tirelessly to make more disciples, we have a divine cause to continue the honorable duty of teaching others and welcoming them to join the heavenly kingdom. Much as it might seem impossible expanding this divine kingdom, Jesus promised to be with us always, till the very end of the age. Therefore, let us walk with confidence and make more disciples as commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ.
