“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.”
It’s so easy. It’s so very, very easy to ignore these two verses Jesus commanded his followers to do. We find it quite convenient to go about our day, carefully adhering to the plans we have made, and to not be bothered by something so disruptive as these two sentences, which are June’s memory verses for CCC.
After all, perhaps nothing in this life is actually more difficult than following these two verses. Obedience would involve:
I admit, it would be far easier for us to pretend like The Great Commission was not even in the Bible. But I have a few questions for you, and I would really like you to seriously ponder them this week: What if these verses from Jesus were not even given to us? Would your life be any different than it is today? When is the last time you actually obeyed this specific command from your Lord?
Please let His Spirit speak to you today.
Please keep praying for the Murrays. After Tayna delivered a beautiful little baby boy, she fell and broke her foot in several places, and now is completely off her foot for some time. This situation makes caring for a newborn extremely difficult.
And while we praise the Lord for the Sangers new home, there is still this concern, from Christine:
Our prayer focus for June is evangelism. Pray not only for yourself, but also for all of the family at CCC for courage, wisdom, and strength to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
