15 Minute Missionary
Have you ever at any time in your life thought you might like to be a Missionary, taking the life changing message of the Gospel to people all around the world? Well, Congratulations, You Are One! The very moment you became a Christian, you were commissioned by Jesus to be a real live Gospel Missionary (Matt 28:18-20, Mark 16:15 and Acts 1:8) responsible for taking His Gospel of Salvation around the corner and around the world! He is depending on each one of us to do our part in order to reach as many people as possible with His wonderful message of Salvation. We are God’s Plan A – there is NO Plan B.
The Great Commission
Jesus final words in Matthew 28:18-20 are known as The Great Commission (we also include Mark 16:15 and Acts 1:8):
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15 (KJV)
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8 (KJV)
Jesus' words are a clear command for ALL of His followers to "GO". It was a perpetual command for All His Disciples to spread All of the Gospel to All Nations throughout All Generations, not just for the handful of men standing before Him. Taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world is the duty of every Christian and the most important responsibility we have on Planet Earth. Jesus couldn't have made our purpose any clearer by His words and through His own actions. Jesus was all about the Gospel and if we want to be faithful Christians and follow in His footsteps, then we must do the same. On the other hand, if we choose to ignore His clear command and are not endeavoring to bring men and women to Christ, then how can any of us be priviledged to say we are "right with God?"
