Dr. Danny's Teacher-to-Teacher Podcast

Oct 30, 2020

  • Why?: If "Go" is not the Commission, what does "Go, therefore…" have to do with the Great Commission?
  • What?: The Great Commission recorded in Matthew chapter 28, verses 19 and 20 begins with "Go, therefore…" Many focus on the going as if the only way to carry out the Great Commission is to "go on mission" to some other place, near or far. While the Commission does include what we, today, call missions, the "Go" at the beginning is the first explanation of what it means to make disciples. "Go" prompts our hearts to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to the dying world, starting in the home, extending to the local community, and then reaching all the way to the most distant lands. "Go" begins when we become followers of Jesus and ends when we have no breath left in our bodies.
  • So What?: Admittedly, it is easy, as a teacher in the church, to leave evangelism and missions to others. After all, we say, we're doing our part by teaching. But, if we really believe what we teach, we need to model what it means to have a heart to reach the lost and teach the redeemed.
  • So What Now?: Pray that God would give you a heart set on obedience that sees the brokenness of every person so that He might use you to go, therefore and make disciples.
