The Great Commission

Mark 16: 15-18

“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

As it says in verse 15, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.”

He commands us to go. Not everyone has to travel halfway around the world. Your country, state, city, and even neighborhood need to know the good news of Jesus Christ. A lot of people have heard the phrase ‘actions speak louder than words’, and it is a very accurate statement.

If you say you are a Christian, but go out and act like the opposite, people will think “hypocrite” and “liar”. Instead, live your life daily striving to be more like Jesus. Ask for forgiveness for your sins, and forget about them. Do not dwell on the sins of yesterday. Focus on doing your best to serve God today. Do this daily.
