Thought for The Day – Tuesday 29th June

matthew post

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.

Matthew 28: 19 – 20a

Churches have many interests but their core task is to see people become disciples of Jesus. Every activity should be geared towards this. Interestingly this task was not given to the ‘church’ as an institution but to the disciples who were a group of individuals. That means we cannot farm out this task to the ‘church’ because it was given to us. Quite challenging isn’t it? So what are you going to do about the task Jesus gave you?

Prayer: Father this is my calling. Often times I don’t want it, it actually makes my life more difficult. Help me.

Action: Speak to people about Jesus today. Not the church but Jesus!
