“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.”
The extension of the Kingdom of God through the Great Commission is both encouraging and confronting to believers. As ambassadors for Christ,it is our spiritual responsibility to share the news of the Lord Jesus Christ in all ages and to all generations.
It is no secret the difficulties and losses that 2020 has brought us. Closed churches, virtual meetings and many difficulties for missionaries in the field. Although the outlook looks very complicated, new opportunities appear on the horizon.
In the midst of a globalized world dominated by technology and social media, the great commission is more important than before. Increasing access to the internet has created the perfect environment to make the word of God known to those who are experiencing difficulties or seeking comfort.
We have at our disposal a powerful, cross-cultural and intergenerational message capable of transforming the lives of the people around us.
Our current reality of isolation has forced us to be proactive andto use this opportunity to share a word of consolation that brings us closer to God. More and more ministries are taking advantage of all the technological tools available to make the message of salvation more current than ever.
These are daring times where each believer is responsible to reflect on this important question:
What attitude will we have to contribute to the Great Commission? Will you dare to disciple or be indifferent to the call?
