The Command to Evangelize

The Command to Evangelize get_app

Published: May 5, 2020

Did you know that everyone who is a Christian has been commanded to be an evangelist?

Read Matthew 28:18-20.

  • There is one word which is repeated 3 times in this passage; see if you can identify it.(All)
  • List each time that the word all is used.
    (All authority has been given to Jesus; make disciples of all nations; teaching them to observe all that Jesus has commanded)
  • Does this give you more or less confidence to go out and do evangelism?

Actually, there is another “all” in this passage. In the original language, verse 20 reads:
“I am with you all the days, until the completion of the age.”

If “all authority” belongs to Jesus, and he promises to be with us “all the days,” then is there really anything to fear as we do the work of evangelism?

The Gospel of Luke records this event in Luke 24:44-49. Read Luke’s account now.

  • According to verse 47, what should we be proclaiming to all the nations?
    (Repentance and forgiveness)

We have been commanded by the Lord Jesus himself to do the work of an evangelist by proclaiming the “good news” to the nations.

Close by identifying at least one person that you know that you would like to share the good news with. Spend a few minutes praying for the people on that list.
