The mandate given by the Lord Jesus to the church
and the people of God is clearly spelled out in Matthew

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been
given to me. 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, and
teaching them to obey everything I have
commanded you. And surely I am with you
always, to the very end of the age.”

How are God’s people responding to this mandate?
Are we actually carrying out this mandate or are we
preoccupied with the peripheral issues which may appear
to fulfil the Great Commission but in reality, we are just
skimming the surface and may in fact be missing the
mark by a great margin?

There is a need to re-examine the essentials of this
mandate and to evaluate the essence of this commission
given by the Lord Jesus in the light of the last days.
