The Great Commission {Something to Think About}

And then He told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. (Mark 16:15 NLT)

Preach the Good News to everyone…

The Good News is not about one style of worship, or a location of worship.

It is not about the Sanctuary looking “just right.”

The Good News is not about being a Sunday Christian.

The Good News is Jesus Christ…

His death and resurrection…for you and for me.

The Good News—that through Christ our relationship with God is restored.

Everyday, one-on-one, our Father wants to spend time with each of us.

And He wants to spend time with the lost…those who do not know His Son, Jesus.
Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: "God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I'll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20 The Message)
In Christ,
Laura

  6. Walk the talk!! I sure am working on this one. It is easy to talk the talk but to live talk, now that speaks volumes to those who are watching.

    Blessings,

  10. That restoration is truly good news! And worth referring to everyone....If I can get excited about an incredible service by a furnace repairman and share it with my neighbor...just think what I could do with the best service done for me!
