Daily devotional: The Great Commission

Scripture
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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20 NIV

Observation
This is what we're all about at Faithbridge, and it is my personal responsibility first to my family, and then in my life commitments at church and elsewhere. I can be comforted to know that Jesus has all authority to entrust this to us (v.18) and that He is with us always--we do not have to do it on our own.

Application
In obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, go and make more and stronger disciples of Jesus Christ. Ask for the Holy Spirit to work powerfully in people and to direct my words and actions.

Prayer
Holy God who made all and rules over all, I submit wholly to You. I pray that You would give me a heart for all people to come to know You and for us to grow into the people You have called us to be. Please grant me wisdom and discernment. Please work in the hearts of all that I come into contact with so that the ground is fertile. And please speak through me the words and actions that will help fulfill Your great commission. I love you!
