The Great Commission
Matthew 28:18-20, NLT
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 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.”
**Note: This passage in and of itself is one of the most important in all of the New Testament. Jesus has told us to follow the commands HE has given us. God gave Jesus absolute authority, oblitterating the past. There's a new King in town! The rules and laws have changed. Whatever Jesus told us we should do and how we should live are now the "laws" we should live by.
