*** It’s Your Mission! ***

Do you know what the last words of Jesus were to the eleven after his resurrection and just before being taken up into heaven?

“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, 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 28:19-20

Jesus could have chosen a thousand and one words for his last speech to his followers. He could have told them again: “Love one another!” or invited them thus: “Relax after all these difficult events” or why not tell them: “Stay together and have fun, you’ve earned it!” But instead he asked them to separate, to move away from each other, and go far away. He could have told them to go to the next town, but at this moment, his call is to reach the nations.

Jesus’ call embraces all nations. It is not limited to my area, my circle of friends. The call of God is beyond me. It is open to all creation! Why? Because God desires that all men be saved, that all people hear the gospel wherever they may be.

In this time of Christmas, Jesus’ words still echo in my heart and I realize even more their significance: “Go, make disciples of all nations …”

But what do these words  “make disciples” really mean? How do you understand them? For me, this video explains it so well that I could not help but share it. It really touched me …

And you, what do you think? What is your mission?

God bless you in this holiday season and may he help us to rediscover our mission.

Together for changed lives,

Eric
