Mark 16:15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to all the creation. Matt 28:19 Go therefore and disciple all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
[Part 1 of 2] In 16:9-11 the Lord Jesus appeared to Mary the Magdalene; in verses 12 and 13, to two of His disciples; and in verses 14 through 18. to the eleven disciples. In verse 15 He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all the creation." This reveals that the redemption of God accomplished by the Slave-Savior through His death and resurrection is not only for man, the leading one in God's creation, but for all the creation. Hence, all things, whether on earth or in the heavens, were reconciled to God, and the gospel should be proclaimed to all creation under heaven (Col. 1:20, 23). At the end of the Gospel of Matthew, the Lord told us to go and preach the gospel to the nations, making them the Lord's disciples (28:19). In the Scriptures, especially in the first three Gospels, there is the principle that Christians must be persons who go. We must go for the purpose of the gospel. In the Gospels we are called by the Lord to come, and we are commanded by the Lord to go. Christians are people who constantly come and go. We come all the time to the Lord, and we go all the time to others. We come to the Lord for mercy, grace, life, and power. However, this is half of the commandment. We also need the other half. We must go! After coming to the Lord, we must go to the nations for the gospel, to gain their souls. [Continued tomorrow] (c) Living Stream Ministry.
