March 2024: He Is Risen! We Are Sent! A Holy Week Reflection on the Great Commission

Ephesians 3:20 declares that God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” God is always moving forward, doing all He can, working with His people to fulfill His Kingdom plans. We should never doubt that! Instead, this promise should continually remind us to carry every need to His throne of grace and mercy. Happy resurrection season! After Jesus rose again, He gave us one final commission: “All authority in heaven and on Earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-19). Jesus’s will has not changed since He spoke those loving and challenging words of purpose. As William Booth declared, we must “go straight for souls, and go for the worst.”
Together, we’ve surrendered to this Great Commission call—to evangelize and disciple as many as possible, especially those who’ve never heard Jesus’s name. By God’s grace and power, we’re impacting countless lives in the process. God’s Word is our motivation, the Holy Spirit is our power, and God is our provider! I feel tremendously thankful for devoted ambassadors like many of you—those who take Jesus’s Great Commission seriously and do everything possible to fulfill His plan.
Tragically, many Christians have instead become bound and distracted by the world. They’re focused on building their own comfortable kingdoms, not God’s. They feel content to give God their leftovers instead of their first fruits. They care little for the unreached in the 10/40 Window. And any of us could easily fall into the same spiritual slumber.
To stay ablaze for God, we must regularly contemplate the life, teaching, and sufferings of Jesus Christ. We must remember why Jesus came—“to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10); “to proclaim liberty to the captives” (Isaiah 61:1); to announce that “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16)! He came to forgive sins and give eternal life! Then how can we withhold our lives from Him? And how can we withhold His message from almost 3.4 billion unreached souls? As Oswald J. Smith said, “The supreme task of the Church is the evangelization of the world.” Do we truly believe that
God’s Call to the Senders
The Apostle Paul asked, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:14). I plead with you to pause and reflect on these words. Brothers and sisters, we are God’s senders. Right now, God is raising up native ministers with a passion for Jesus, a burden for lost souls, and an overwhelming desire to reach their unreached neighbors with Jesus’s glorious gospel. And right now, God is calling us to send them out through our prayers and finances. Yes, while many of us pray, “Come, Lord Jesus!” God calls to us, “Go, send, church!” God urges us not to forfeit our responsibility to fulfill the Great Commission!
Will it Matter at the Judgement Seat?
Brothers and sisters, let’s be honest—many of our priorities won’t matter at the Judgment Seat of Christ. The material things we’ve acquired won’t matter. Our social status won’t matter. Our financial legacy won’t matter. All that will remain is what we did for God’s glory. Did we live for Jesus or ourselves? How did we love God and others? And how did we reflect Jesus as the light of the world and the salt of the Earth—the ambassadors of Jesus Christ?
In light of this, let’s refuse to be procrastinators. May we never say, “I’ll obey God’s call…one day.” Instead, let’s live daily to fulfill Jesus’s words—“This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14). As missionary C.T. Studd said, “Only one life ‘twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.” Yes, He is risen—and we are sent!
It’s time to live for eternity.
