Commissioned by Jesus


Sam Brown

Having offered an invite to “come to” Jesus, he now sends his followers out saying “go” and make disciples. Most importantly this command is given in the middle of two statements of reassurance – firstly in verse 18, we are reminded that all authority in heaven and on earth have been given to us. Secondly in verse 20 we are reassured of the presence of Jesus with us, to the very end of the age. As we consider our ‘frontlines’ of mission during the week (school, community, clubs, work etc) we are sent out with authority and with the presence of Jesus.
