As You Go | Bobby Brooks
While the Great Commission does begin with the word “Go” it doesn’t mean quite what we think it means. Rather than being an in-your-face command, it is much more invitational in nature. It has more of an “As you go” sort of feel. In other words, wherever we are, we’re in just the right place to share the love of Jesus with whoever we meet. By recognizing the “As you go” nature of the commission, what we discover is that missions is not just a trip we take once a year to a foreign country, it is the everyday posture of God’s people to everyone, everywhere, always.

Baptizing people in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is much more than just a formula used during baptisms; it is a call to invite people to discover all of who God really is.
After sending the disciples out to disciple the nations, many questions must have rattled through those bewildered disciples minds. One that I have to imagine must have been at the forefront of those questions is simply “How?” How do we disciple disciples? What does this look like or mean? In classic Jesus fashion, Jesus answers their unspoken questions by immediately following up His charge to disciple the nations with the call to, “Baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit”. Clearly this is a call to baptism as formally understood but, as we’ll see today, it’s much more than that. In sending the disciples out to baptize people in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Jesus set before these doubting and confused disciples the invitation to invite people into the Trinitarian fullness of who God really is.
Next Steps
Heart: When and how did you become a Christian? How has life changed since then? If you’re not a Christian, what is holding you back?
Mind: Read and reflect on Acts 8:26-40 this week. How does the interaction between Philip and this Ethiopian man help you better understand what it means to disciple disciples?
Soul: Reflect on what keeps you from sharing your faith what others. Is it really fear or is it something else?
Strength: Is there someone you’ve known for a while who you’ve never really shared your faith with? Take a step of faith this week and share your story with them.
Neighbors: Take an hour this week and sit in or walk through a public space (think a coffee shop, park or store etc.). As you’re there, people watch. Make eye contact. Smile. Listen and ask God to open your heart to a deeper love for them, the kind of love that can’t not share with them the joy and hope you’ve found in Jesus.
