We exist to glorify God through obedience to the command “Go.” Go to your heart. Go to your family. Go to your community. Go to the world.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.-Mathew 28:19.
Go to your heart
Preach the gospel to yourself. If there is no changed life, there is no authenticity.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. –Psalms 42:5
Go to your family
Preach the gospel to your family. Hypocrisy breeds unbelief.
We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments – Psalms 78:4-7.
Go to your community
Preach the gospel to your community as living billboards through a changed life.
Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. – 2 Corinthians 3:2-3.
Go to the world
Preach the gospel to the world.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. – Mathew 28:18-20
From the eternal love of Father, Son and Spirit to the Church springs obedience to the great commission.
