The Great Commission, Part 1

Text: Luke 24:36-53

Summary: Following the sermons on the Great Commandment (to love God and to love people) we now focus on the Great Commission. If we love God and other people we are compelled to be concerned about the most important truth they could ever know – how to be in a relationship with God! The Luke passage we consider today contains the Great Commission in one succinct verse, Luke 24:47. But the context surrounding this command reveals several beliefs and convictions we must hold if we are to be personally and corporately committed to Jesus’ mandate to take the gospel into all the world.
