Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Many people debate on what this command means but I think it’s very clear, we are to go out into the world and preach the gospel to the unsaved and to the lost. It’s not an exhortation, I believe it’s a command, some people may say “God hasn’t called me to up and leave and be a missionary.” or “I’m not that kind of person.” I think that God’s word is clear that wherever He has put us, it’s a mission field, as you go about your day you are constantly surrounded by unbelievers, God has sent us into the world to be a light for Him.
Think about it, our savior loved us so much He left all his riches and glory in heaven to come to earth and die for us. And He left His followers with one command and now we are too afraid to follow that last command that Jesus said, He said “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel” not just those who have the courage to, not just if it’s easy for you. Because it would be really easy if all we had to do was accept Jesus and move on with life but THAT IS NOT SALVATION, Salvation is a change in our heart, it is saying “God i want you to take control” it is following in Jesus’ steps and obeying His commands John 14:15. If we truly loved Jesus with our heart, soul, mind and strength we would obey Him and follow in His steps.
You know Jesus loves the lost so much more than we ever could, even while He was on earth He sent His 12 disciples to “Preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” He had a heart for hurting souls so much so that He died so they might have a way to live. And it is our job to share that good news. So let me encourage you that wherever God has put you follow His command. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
