Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20, The Message
The role of the church is changing. It has to or it will cease to exist in many places. The church needs to take the final instructions of Jesus very seriously. Jesus, after spending three years with his disciples, teaching them, showing them what they are going to be doing, much like apprentices to the master are now charged with continuing his work.
We are the new recruits.
We are the ones who have inherited this task from the generations of disciples who have gone before us.
It doesn’t seem right to simplify this task into a single video, but in a way it really is this simple.
Get the light of Jesus into us.
