Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
Read: Matthew 28
Consider: In my last post I shared with you that I was on the island of Arran, taking part in an SU camp. The photograph above was taken during that camp and looks from Arran, across the Firth of Clyde, to the Scottish mainland.
Reflecting on the camp I thought of the Great Commission quoted from Matthew 28. The commission is to tell the good news of the gospel to all nations. Interestingly, at camp last week we had young people attending from France and Spain, together with those from throughout the UK.
It was a great peivilege to see the leaders share the gospel in a meaningful way. It was good to see a movement of the Holy Spirit in the lives of young people and to see some of them commit their lives to Christ. It was also good to see others being willing to share their faith in conversations with fellow campers. Another delight were the times of worship – such volume in their singing!
Pray: Father, we thank you for the privilege of sharing the gospel. We pray for those who have responded to the gospel that they may be good seed on good soil, producing a harvest in the future. Amen
