The Mission to the World Day 15 of 20
What must it have been like to be there? To have witnessed Jesus’ crucifixion; to encounter him resurrected from the dead; to see him ascend to heaven. The task set before this small group of disciples seemed impossible – “go and make disciples of all nations”. Yet today, all over the world, people have come to Christ. Jesus’ great commission, which we in turn take on today in our generation, is accompanied by a wonderful promise: as we take the gospel to the world, Jesus himself is with us. May we fulfil this commission, confident of his presence, today.
