Matthew 28:16–20 (ESV)

The Great Commission

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


This is called the Great Commission, not the Great Suggestion.  We are to take the Gospel out into the world, to tell them about Jesus and what He has done for them.  This is not my words, but the words of Jesus.  We live in a world that rejects baptism and Jesus’s teachings.  The Great Commission is important and this is how Matthew closes his Gospel.


I pray: O Lord, the world is rejecting you and your sacraments.  I pray for the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of those who here the Gospel.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
