Before Jesus left, He gathered His disciples and “commissioned” them to go make disciples of all of us. This job is not reserved for clergy only. It’s our duty, ordained by Jesus Himself. Thank God for that. We all have a divine purpose!
The eleven followers went to Galilee to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. On the mountain they saw Jesus and worshiped him, but some of them did not believe it was really Jesus. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All power in heaven and on earth is given to me. So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you, and I will be with you always, even until the end of this age.” (NCV)
Peter reiterates what Jesus said, confirming that we are all messengers who find our way in Jesus. We are God’s very own priests. Hallelujah! Spread the word!
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, royal priests, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession. You were chosen to tell about the wonderful acts of God, who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (NCV)
