The Great Commission

Please read Matthew 28: 16-20 and use these notes to prepare for Sunday morning worship.

Sermon Focus: The Great Commission

Key Verse: “Go therefore 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 that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28: 19) ”

  • What does it mean for you to be a disciple? And do we help others along the same path?
  • What is the most central command Jesus has given you that you seek to obey in your life?

Key Verse:  “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 20)

  • Being a disciple is not an easy road. Jesus knows this and leaves his disciples with these words. Do they bring you comfort? How?  Do they empower you?  How?
  • Would anything change in your discipleship path if you truly lived by this truth – that Jesus is with us?

Connection for Today:

The words of the great commission are central to the United Methodist Church.  They are the words that guide our entire denomination.  How do they guide your life and your journey of faith?  We seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and this Scripture reminds us of that command of Jesus.
