Jesus wants us to go out and help others follow him!
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about a a special mission Jesus gave to his disciples and to us. It’s called the Great Commission. Right before Jesus left to go back to heaven, he called his disciples together and he told them about this special mission. This mission had three parts to it. The first part was to go and make disciples. A disciple just means a follower of Jesus. So, Jesus told the disciples to go and tell other people about him. Remember, Jesus was leaving so he was putting the responsibility on the disciples to share about who Jesus was and what he came to do. The second part was to baptize. When people put their trust in Jesus, they should be baptized. It’s a way to tell the world that they now belong to Jesus. The third things was to teach the people to obey God’s commands. The Bible is full of God’s commands that tell everyone how to live to honor God. Every follower of Jesus has this as their mission. That means you and me! So, tell your friends about Jesus and fulfill the mission Jesus has given you.
