Go To The Nations

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Have you ever heard this famous Biblical passage before? It’s called the Great Commission and is Christ’s final command to us before He returns to Heaven.
Unfortunately, it can be something Christians ignore for several reasons. One of them is that we involve ourselves in all kinds of seemingly good things that keep us all too busy. Jim Collins wrote a widely used book in the business world that opens with this statement, “Good is the enemy of great.” And so many times, we do all kinds of good things, and yet, they are not the great things that we could be doing in seeing men and women come to Jesus. Christ said, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” And His last command should be every Christian’s first concern. Let’s look at three ways we can all go to the nations: join in prayer, take heart, and rejoice in persecution.
