Jesus, having all authority in heaven and earth, has deputized his followers to help each other follow and honor him. This is known as the making of disciples. This morning we explore how God has equipped us with the tools we need to accomplish his mission.
Before we can talk about the last familiar words of Jesus to “Go and make disciples” we need to grasp the authority by which Jesus spoke these words. This morning we seek to grow in our understanding the authority of Jesus and it’s impact on our lives.
Let us celebrate! Our king who was once dead is now alive and now rules over death itself! Now let us learn together what this great truth means, resurrection is both the ends and the means of us following Jesus!
Matthew takes great care to provide the evidence that Jesus is the king for which we have been waiting, thus making the call of Jesus to “Repent for the kingdom is near” and “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of people” compelling. In a phrase, Jesus is worth following.
