In this message, we focus on the ‘GO’ aspect of our faith life ‘In The World’. The last words that Jesus spoke in the Gospel of Matthew are what we call ‘The Great Commission’, His instructions to the disciples to ‘go’ into all the world making disciples and teaching them to walk in obedience to the Lord. The book of Acts tells the initial story of the spread of the Gospel as Jesus’ first disciples did exactly as he commanded.
This commission is still valid for the Church of Jesus Christ and, if you think about it, is the reason that any of us heard the Gospel in the first place. In order to fulfill the Great Commision, we must continue to ‘go’ in service of the Gospel. We ‘go’ into our neighborhoods, workplaces, communities, and even to the ends of the earth.
At Kirk Crossing, there are many ways to ‘go’ from local ministries to short-term mission trips. What is your next step in going?
