The Great Commission

Pastor Mark's message is based on the words of the Master found in Matthew 28:16-19

Four truths from Christ's last words.

1. There is power in Jesus' command. "All power is given to me," but power is given to His followers: the Holy Spirit baptism with power from on high. The problem with many Christians today is that they are satisfied to live powerless.

2. We see people in His command. "Go ye..." He is addressing us, His followers.

3. We see a plan in His command. a) "Go" b) "Win" converts c) Baptize d) Teach, that is make disciples of them. We cannot improve the plan. We need to follow the plan. Don't try to reinvent the wheel; get the wheel moving!

4. We see a promise within the command. "I am with you always, even to the end of the world." Go, implement the plan. You do not go alone!

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. --Jesus Christ
