Missionaries (10)

The last missionary we will talk about is YOU! If you are a Christian, then you should be a missionary for Jesus.
The verses in our Bible Reading today are some of the last words Jesus spoke on earth. Jesus’ words are repeated in Mark 16:14-20. Mark 16:19 tells us, “After the Lord Jesus said these things to his followers, he was carried up into heaven. There, Jesus sat at the right side of God.”
Jesus spoke to His followers who were with Him, but I believe these words are for us, too. Jesus does not suggest that we should talk to people about Him if we have the time. Jesus commands us to do this!
We should obey Jesus’ command to teach and baptize people. These new Christians will then teach other people. God’s church will grow and grow. Why? Because we are missionaries who share the Good News about Jesus!
