Jesus commanded us to “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.” Matthew 28:19-20a
Two things are required in order to “GO” and spread the gospel.
Grace and Obedience.
The first is God’s gift, and the second is our response to that gift. Grace is the giving of something we could never earn. Through God’s grace, by the death of Jesus for our sins, we are made “worthy” to be his disciples. We obediently step out, believing God will bless our efforts in His perfect plan and timing.
The focus then shifts from our abilities to His capability.
So, GO, my friend. It’s all right. Whether it is next door or halfway around the world, the Holy Spirit goes with you. Jesus promised that.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:20b)
