Jesus’ Rules for Living Part I, The Great Commission
Bible Reading: Matthew 28:36-40
Before Jesus ascended into Heaven he gathered his followers together as gave them this command:
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Teaching Point: One of Jesus` rules for His followers is that we should tell other people about Him. Why is this important? Jesus promises us that through Him we have received an eternal relationship with God and forgiveness from all our sins. For many people, these things are not important yet, but for some people they are very important, and so as Jesus` followers we must tell people that Jesus has provided these things for us.
