Sent by God Matthew 28 Let's Go
Dr. Lennett Anderson
The Great Commission
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Matthew 28:19-20 NLT
Shame on us if we send missionaries to Africa but can't witness next door.
Thank you God for sending us.
Very little is said about GO.
Get off the BLESSED ASSURANCE.
Keep moving forward. Reaching forward to the goal.
He'll say Well DONE!
Achieve the goal.
Run well. Follow him. His last is our first. We have been twiddling our thumbs.
We act like the frozen frozen. We need to be the scattered church.
Many of our churches are museums.
We build monuments not movements.
For such a time as this? Are you a seat warmer?
If I perish I perish but I'm moving.
The Commission is still our Mission. You need permission to stay.
Go is still the LAST WORD.
There is no one like you God.
Change is not optional. It's necessary.
Too many are existing not living. Get a life. He died so we could have life.
It's wrong to have buildings and not life.
Acts 1:8 You will be my witnesses.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Acts of the Apostles 1:8 NLT
Start fishing in our ponds. How you gonna catch men if you don't go fishing.
YOU WILL BE. Not a choice. You will go. What kind of witness will you be? Lay, expert, hostile?
I'm just a nobody that can tell everybody there is someone who can save everybody.
Hostile witnesses refuse to tell anybody.
There is someone to catch.
Be on the DREAM TEAM.
Jesus preached on a mountain so we could live in the valley.
He came from heaven to earth. Is your heart beating for the lost?
All power all authority. Waves obey. You are authorized to Go!
We can't clean a fish until we catch it.
The process. Feed them.
The Promise. God is with us.
I'm with you always to the end of the age. Diluted gospel will kill the church.
You go to mission because you know the Promise Keeper.
You are a carrier of the BEST NEWS!
Speak truth in love.
I have GOOD NEWS. Spread it.
