The Great Commission (an assignment; a command)

Matthew 28:19-20 [Jesus]...GO...MAKE DISCIPLES [Christians] of all nations...TEACHING them to obey everything I have commanded you.

The Great Commission is 1) spiritual, 2) teaching, 3) the Word of God, 4) outward, 5) endless, 6) limitless, 7) unselfish. It's "go and make" not "sit and wait"; it's aggressive!

Whatever we do, we must not treat the Great Commission like it's the Great Suggestion. - Chuck Swindoll, Pastor & Author

The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed. - Hudson Taylor, Missionary

There is no higher calling or greater privilege known to man than being involved in helping fulfill the Great Commission. - Bill Bright, Founder Campus Crusade for Christ

Any church that is not seriously involved in fulfilling the Great Commission has forfeited its biblical right to exist. - Oswald J. Smith, Pastor & Author

The church that does not evangelize will fossilize. - Oswald J. Smith, Pastor & Author

As we have already seen, the Great Commission is not something that was given to a tiny group of specially trained and educated envoys. It was given to all Christians---to the whole Church. - K. P. Yohannan, Founder & President of Gospel for Asia

The Great Commission focuses us outward, so we're not self-centered, or "shining the light on ourselves."

Only the Church can do The Great Commission.

Dr. J. Vernon McGee - Thru the Bible: "Get the Word out" - get "The whole Word to the whole world."

Isaiah 55:11 ...My Word...will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

1 Corinthians 3:6 I {Paul} planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.

Revelation 3:8 ...I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength...

THANKS! for your prayers, tithes, and offerings that help us do His Great Commission!
