‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28 vs 19)

Jesus instructs his disciples to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”.

Will I be remembered in 200 years? I doubt it, but many famous Scotsmen continue to be, for instance, John Logie Baird (television), Alexander Fleming (penicillin) and, of course, Dr David Livingstone, born on March 18, 1813.

Two hundred years on and he is still remembered for the exploration of central Africa, the discovery of the Victoria Falls, but also his mission to reach the people of Africa with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He did all his work very successfully, through dedication to serve his Lord, by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and leading people to become followers of Jesus.

As the text outlines, all Christians have been given a challenge to reach out to people and bring them the good news about Jesus.

Our mission field may not be to far away places, it may not be in unfamiliar circumstances, the opportunity may simply be next door.
