Basic Scripture:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and 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. ’’ (Matthew 28:19-20)


The word “nations” found in Matthew 28:19 is from the Greek “ethnos,” meaning a group or company of people with common characteristics, vision, trade or interests. It refers to the people in our world of influence; our sphere of contact or interaction. It could be our family, class mates, neighbourhood, community, place of work, state, region or country.

In today’s verse, Jesus gives the church the “Marching orders”.These words are a command that is why we call this the Great Commission and not the Great suggestions. It is the last recorded personal instructions given by Jesus to His disciples. The instructions are to “go, “baptize,” and “teach”. The Great Commission obliges us to share the good news until everyone has heard it.

The Great Commission has instead become the Great Omission. We are failing to make disciples within our circles. We would all not be preaching at the pulpit, nevertheless, we can still proclaim the gospel.  Our lifestyle should be our primary form of evangelism thus Christ must be seen in our everyday life. In so doing, souls can give their life to Christ without us approaching them or with little effort. Salvation does not end us. We are to take the message of Jesus to our nation.
