We discussed the great commission, which means the instruction of the resurrected Jesus Christ to his disciples to spread his teachings to all the nations of the world. The reason why it is important is that it was the last word of Jesus to his disciples and followers. So, if you believe in Jesus Christ, if you are the disciples of Jesus, we should follow the order Jesus gave us. There are two things that we should know about the great commission.
First, we should know the term of Kingdom of God, which means not only the spiritual aspect of Jesus dying on the cross forgiving our sins but also the physical aspect of Jesus as the messiah and replacing the Pax Romana. That means liberation from both spiritual and physical chains. So, it was really good news to all the people.
Second, we should know about the Holy Spirit. It is God. God wanted to give them the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It was required to share the gospel in dangerous situations. Through the Holy Spirit, we can overcome many obstacles to share the gospel. So, I just wanna challenge you guys. We should be disciples of Jesus, not just attend church. And as Jesus’ disciples, we should be thinking about his great commission all the time and everywhere.
