I have a short article in the latest issue of Tabletalk Magazine. It’s titled “Does the Church Know Her Commission?.” I argue that the Great Commission,
“summons us to invite the nations to treasure Christ in such a way that even if they lose everything â€” even their lives â€” it is okay so long as they have Him [Matthew 13:44]. That is why making disciples involves not just the entry-level rite of baptism but also the obligation of ‘teaching them to obey all that I commanded you.’ Where this framework is missing, so is the GreatÂ Commission.”
Do our churches understand that the task of evangelism is the task of calling out a people who would go to the death for Jesus? You can read the rest here.
