Great Things In The Great Commission
The "great commission" or final orders by Jesus to the apostles apply to you and me as today. These words are found at the end of Matthew, Mark, and Luke’s account. This series uses Matthew 28:18-20 as the outline of points. Disciples are to be taught all things that were given to the apostles. These inspired men provided these things to us in the New Testament and are in fact an extension of Christ's authority and rule over the nations.
We must be careful to continue in the apostles' doctrine rather than the traditions of men (Acts 2:42). God has provided to us all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3). Sadly, man often disrespects the authority of Christ by adding his own thoughts and ideas to the gospel or diminishing from it. The faithful will not turn away to the right or left of it. Equally sad, many people become so enraptured by their preacher/speaker that they fail to be objective and studious to the written record.
