The Great Opportunity (Matthew 28:18-20)

A message (18 min) about Jesus’ commission to his disciples and several super loaded concepts like authority, disciple-making, the Trinity, obedience, God’s presence, and the nature of the human person, but presented with a distinctly Quaker twist and a noticeably hopeful outlook.

Matthew 28:18-20 (NRSV):

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Queries:

What is God showing me about God?

What is God showing me about me?

What is God showing me about Jesus’ commission?

What is the relevance of any of this to what’s happening in our country right now?
