One of the wonderful hallmarks of the church comes from the Great Commission, found in today’s Scripture lesson. In Matthew 28:19, we find these words:

“’Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.’”

We have been given the sacred task of winning souls for Christ. It is important that we understand that this is not just the responsibility of the pastor or preacher, but of all who are called according to His name. We do not go alone, for we know all power is given unto us. Every believer is summoned by God to declare His Holy and Righteous Name. The priesthood of all believers makes all of us proclaimers of the gospel. Verse 19 speaks about baptizing and teaching in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. Baptizing has a profound meaning; it is a symbol or ritual that we cannot afford to ignore. Teaching is a term that reflects the awesome responsibility of proclaiming the gospel. It is more than just theory, but it is practical application of the Bible to our lives. It is a tremendous blessing to know that in some way we have led someone to Christ; not simply with our words, but also by the life we have lived. When we do, we have fulfilled the Great Commission.
