MAKING DISCIPLES (MATTHEW 28:18-20)
And Jesus came and said to them,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Christians across the diocese, along with their church communities, shape what they do by the Great Commission – Jesus’ last words to his followers. He says, we are ‘to make disciples of all nations’ as our primary task. So, each one of us is called to bring the gospel (the good news message of Jesus) to the ‘nations’ who live in, or visit our region. The ‘nations’ come as miners, short term workers, tourists, seafarers and new residents. It’s a great joy to meet the variety of people with whom we share the north west. But an even greater joy to share the good news of Jesus.
