How Do We Do the Great Commission?
Pearson Johnson, Director of Student Care
I have read my Bible today, fellowshipped with God, and interceded for others in prayer—and checked social media for updates on people for which I am praying. I sat through two great in-service meetings at work. Oh… and I have been about the business of fulfilling the Great Commission.
Right before Jesus left the earth, He told us what our life’s focus should be. We call it the “Great Commission.” It’s not the “Relevant Application” or the “Tangential Consideration.” I think it could better be termed by nature of its timing, its source, and its intended impact, “The All-Consuming Commission.” Mark and Neal built the foundation for understanding the nature and implications of the Great Commission. Today I want to offer some suggestions by way of personal involvement for how we “do” the Great Commission today.
You may notice a theme.
A theme which seeks to purposefully and specifically fulfill what Jesus has commissioned us to do—everyday involvement in going and making disciples who are baptized into local churches whose leaders are trained to plant churches in all parts of the world. May God help us do what Jesus commissioned us to do!
