Equipping the Church to Fulfill the Great Commission
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to follow all that I commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
In John 17:23, Jesus prays for believers “that they become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.”
As Christians, we must unify around the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for there is salvation in no one else (Acts 4:12)
One at a Time
In Luke 15, Jesus tells the Parable of the Lost Sheep, where the shepherd leaves the 99 sheep to go after the one who is lost so that he might be saved.
