We Are Commissioned By Christ!

The Great Commission Matthew 28The devil cannot control any part of your life that God does not give him permission with limited access. He needs God’s permission to gain access. And when God gives him permission, his access is limited. God will allow what must be, to see fulfillment of what he commission. Truth be told, the devil has no control. God is in full control.

Jesus appeared before his disciples in Galilee before he ascended into heaven and gave them these instructions, ‘Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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 28:18-20 NIV)

Jesus commands us to take action in our faith anywhere he sends us. Just as His disciples were instructed to go out in the world to proclaim and teach the gospel of God’s kingdom. We are followers of Christ. We are to witness, reach the masses, and lead others to Christ. Fulfill Jesus’ command as he specifically instructed. Teach, baptize. Make disciples.

Be attentive to the Holy Spirit. You have the ability to make significant contributions to help complete the “The Great Commission.” Advance God’s kingdom. Intercede on behalf of others with prayer. Prayer is spiritual warfare. Discern the attacks of the enemy. Defeat any and all devious plans of the enemy. Rebuke that spirit. Take back all the enemy thinks is his. Everything in the earth is God’s, not his.

We’re on high alert. Devil, you’ve been warned. You have been served notice. You are forewarned. Whatever devious plans or tricks you have up your sleeves, you will be defeated. We serve a mighty God. Thank you Jesus!

We are commissioned by Christ! It is our mission to share the gospel, teach, baptize, make disciples, and bring others to Christ. Follow Jesus’ command as instructed. Obey and follow his instructions.

Be blessed! -JD

Matthew 28:16-2016 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” (NIV)

  1. Amen, sister! I think the biggest error we make is thinking this means “to convert.” Becoming a disciple of Jesus is a lifelong process. We help others become disciples through our faith and our action, as the Lord’s brother James suggested. It is by watching us and desiring what we have in the Holy Spirit that others will willing and joyfully step onto that narrow path. Bless you for reminding us of our Great Commission.

    • Amen my sister in Christ! It is a lifelong process that doesn’t happen overnight but requires commitment and dedication as we develop and mature in our relationship with Christ. It’s ongoing. It’s a process. We serve for a lifetime. As we spread the gospel, we help lead others to follow Christ. We are commissioned forever. You’re welcome. My pleasure 🙂
