Daily Reflection

matthew 28:16-20

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


HOW WE CAN BE JESUS NOW: Make Disciples of All Nations

They worshiped him. They saw him and worshiped because it wasn’t so long ago that they saw his body taken from the cross he had been nailed to and put into a tomb, yet here he was standing before them. Jesus says that in his death and resurrection all authority has been given to him, and he is now giving us a command, “Make disciples of all nations.”

Jesus’ death and resurrection are for every single person, and he wants us to be the ambassadors of that message. He includes us in his restoration process and that restoration happens when all people hear the same good news that those Apostles first responded to. The Apostles started a movement that no one can question. Christianity has invaded almost every part of the world. From a few poor peasants to becoming the official religion of Rome in the 4th century, there is no belief system that rivals that of Christianity.

This should give us hope that the message we carry is true, meaningful and effective. How is God calling you to make disciples right now? How is the reminder that God came for you spurring you to go to others?
