Hello all, my sermon from today is now online. It was titled, “The ALL consuming call”.
In it we looked at the two passages that are known as the Great Commission – Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15-16. In these passages the word “all” is used four times. This formed the main points of the message.
- Jesus has ALL Authority in heaven and on earth
- Jesus told us to go into ALL the world and make disciples
- Jesus told us to teach them to obey ALL His teachings
- Jesus promises to be ALL-ways with us
One key for us as Christians is we need to realise that all authority belongs to Jesus. He has all authority in heaven and at His baptism He received His Father’s approval. While on earth Jesus performed all types of miracles that confirmed His authority on earth.
In these passages we also see that Jesus bookend His commands. He says all authority is with Him and He promises to be all-ways with us. In the middle He says to go and make disciples and teach them to obey all His teachings.
