Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional 13 April 2020
Topic: The Great Commission
Scripture: Matthew 28:11-20
Outline: The soldiers posted to guard Jesus’ tomb failed to discharge their duty. The assignment was beyond them because despite their efforts, Jesus rose from the dead and is alive, Hallelujah! Instead of acknowledging the truth about His resurrection, they changed the story, “His disciples came and stole him while we were asleep’’, yet they were not prosecuted.
In verse 16, the eleven disciples obeyed the women’s testimony and went to Galilee to meet their Master whom they saw alive and worshiped. Some however doubted His resurrection while some believed. Do you believe or doubt Jesus resurrection? Verse 18-20 spell out the requirements of the Great Commission to the disciples and every believer as follows:Go and make disciples of all nations; Baptise them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost;Teach them to obey all the commandments.
Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional 13 April 2020 – The Great Commission
The above commission has the backing and authority of Jesus and this authority is supreme and all-encompassing, both in heaven and on earth. For this reason, there should be no fear or compromise in going out to preach.We should rise up to the charge and save the world in need. When last did you speak to someone near or far about our Lord Jesus, The Messiah?
“Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.” (Psalm 62:1)
Here am I, Lord send me.
