This week’s posts begin a series on Being Identified With Christ and on His charge to go unto all the world. This command to influence and occupy is inseparable from Truth, so expect a little of that as well.
Let’s begin here:
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 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.” Matthew 28:19-29 NLT
Exalt the cross in the gathering darkness. The cross and the rolled back stone are not simply part of our message to the world, but rightly understood are the whole of it. Be faithful in your calling; shine as a light in the world. Do not let compromise eclipse courage. Better to die sharing the Gospel than to live denying the Christ who purchased us.
The outcome is certain. God rules, and in the end He will demonstrate His power and righteousness. Jesus will return. Satan will be defeated. Those who are Christ’s will be with the Lord FOREVER.
