I am so excited to write and to speak with you tonight because I am talking about God’s Word and every time His Word is present it is always a awesome time!
(take a look to your right....... now to your left....... we are all different. our faces,bodies,personalities,way of thinking, way of growing up, but we are all here for one reason.......God! and i want you to know if you ever have questions about His Word that I am always here for you or if you are having a bad/good day/week i am always here for you. I want everyone to have a Bible! if you do not have one I want to put one into your hand so please let me know as soon as possible. I want you to have one because I care so much for you! I want you to know how much you are loved just as love was shown for me from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I want you to know who He is and I want you to know life!
Today I am starting a new series(starting with an overview and then more in depth next week) called GO! (can everyone say that word with me? ..... 1.2.3. Go! one more time.... 1.2.3 GO!) Two letters that rocked my world as I read through scriptures and I felt I needed to share with all of you!
In your personal life has anyone of you found out something that right away after you found out you had to tell someone about it?........ When thinking about that question I can think about a time in high school when I went through a semester with straight A’s. When I received my final grades from my school I couldn’t wait to go tell my parents. My parents were so excited and told me to go tell my brother,sister, and relatives. Something I thought was pretty cool blew up to everyone knowing. It was a lasting effect because with the grades I received in high school lead into getting into college.
With that being said let us open scripture to Matthew 28:19 which states: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” That sentence was told by Jesus to His eleven disciple. Jesus was already crucified and His human flesh was gone.... Can you believe this????.... After living on this earth.... hated by so many.... tortured by so many.... ridiculed by so many.... continued to love and wanted everyone to know the truth after His human body was dead. Let us read this sentence in Scripture one more time and with more gusto: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy spirit! This is a lasting impact Jesus entrusted onto the disciples.... This was not a time to just meet up with Jesus and to come and prove that He had gone to Heaven... This was for a reason.. Jesus wanted people to know.
Let us continue to verse 20: Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you and be sure of this: I am with you always even to the end of the age.
One of the key points I want to hit before I end is this: Jesus is not finished.
He was there in the beginning of time, He was there on the Mountain where He met with the 11 disciples, and He is here right now. He wanted the disciples to know what He wants us to know and that is that He will always be with you always even to the end of the age!
Brothers and sisters of Christ at the beginning I stressed about the importance of having a Bible so if you need one let me know.
These scriptures were entrusted to us for a reason. This book is different from any other books out there. This is truth, this is life. I know it... you know it.... but your neighbor might not.... your co-workers might not... your family might not... a stranger that you have never meet might not...
I am here as a servant of Jesus Christ telling you to “Go” and make disciples and to spread the Good news of Jesus Christ.
Prayer: God we thank you for this day you have given us! I thank you for the opportunity to share your Word with everyone! Lord I pray you are with each and everyone of us here. I pray that you work through us Lord and I pray you use us in your will. We love you Lord and we want to reach our brothers and sisters out there who do not know who you are. whether it is a co-worker or a family Lord we pray you will be by our side as we head into any situation. we love you with all of our hearts
In your glorious name
