Embracing the Great Commission

By Global Frontier Missions

Whether you were ready to turn the page on 2019 or not, here we are. It’s 2020, and we have before us a year of great potential — potential for opportunity and obstacle alike. None of us can begin to know what tomorrow holds, let alone this new year. And yet, with all the changes we face, whether personally, relationally, politically, or globally, there are unchanging truths that we as believers in Jesus can hold on to with great confidence and certainty.

The Word of God boldly and repeatedly declares that our God is unchanging (Mal. 3:6Heb. 13:8), that His Word is a solid rock upon which we can stand (Is. 8:40Matt. 24:35), and that His purpose for our lives and this world will be accomplished (Ps. 33:11Matt. 24:14).

These confidences provide us a staggering amount of clarity, but in the face of a consumer-culture where we’re used to having a-hundred-and-one options for everything, will we accept that clarity?

We’ve been given a heavenly mandate to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:18-20). But how often do we treat that Great Commission from our unchanging Lord as though it were a “great suggestion” for a select few of us?

As we start off this new year, we at GFM invite you to join us in considering the mission of Jesus afresh. What does it mean for us to embrace this God who is the same yesterday, today, and forever? How do we treasure Him and His unchanging Word? And how do we respond to the final words He spoke to His followers while on this earth?

In the simple words of John Piper, we really only have three options, not thirty options, not three hundred options. “Go, send, or disobey.

It’s a new year, and yet some things never change, including the purposes of our God. In light of that, how will you respond to His commission and allow it to shape the rest of 2020?
