The Great OMISSION?

June 15th, 2012 Posted in sermons

We all know that Jesus has told us to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations”

We call this the Great Commission.
Here is my question:

Has the Great Commission become the Great Omission?
How many of us are really doing it?
In the original language, this statement of Jesus to His followers is a command not a suggestion.

But what does it mean exactly to “Go and make disciples”?

Definition.

The full concept of “going into all the world and making disciples” is to share our faith, to seek to lead people to Christ, and then to the best of our ability help them mature spiritually.

Then we are to go and repeat the process again, and again, and again.

Sort of the like the directions on some clothes: Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

In our case it’s Preach, Disciple, Repeat.

Colossians 1:28 says, “We proclaim Christ! We warn everyone we meet, and we teach everyone we can, all that we know about Him. This we do that we may bring every man to his full maturity in Christ.”

So, let’s get on with it!

    We could not agree more! It is not the “Great Suggestion,” it is the Great Commission!
