Matthew records Jesus’s last words, in what we call the Great Commission, in Matthew 28:19-20:
“Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Jesus gave this command before He ascended into heaven, and it outlines what He expected the apostles and those who followed them (that’s us!) to do in His absence.
Is there a picture anywhere in the Bible of the accomplishment of this mission? Yes!
In the last book of the Bible, the author John says about heaven, “There before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language.”
This is why we are so passionate about reaching our world; because this mission will be accomplished and we get to be a part of it.
To encourage each other as we move forward together in the fulfillment of this call, we are launching a Global Connect group on our Realm communication platform as a way for you to stay connected to what God is accomplishing through Black Rock’s involvement around the world. You will be able to hear real time stories from the field, interact with our global partners, learn more about mission and take your next step forward.
