As Christs followers we have been called to go and make disciples of all nations as mandated by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20. This is a call to preach the gospel against all odds. What does this look like today? Let’s explore this series to see where we fall short of this mandate.
It is impossible for the gospel to go forward without considerable spiritual warfare.Jesus did say that the gates of hell would not prevail against the church but that doesn’t mean the gates of hell would throw up a white flag when they see the church coming.There will be considerable damage in the battle, but God is faithful and he will not abandon his servants.
Why is it the first Testament? Throughout the Old Testament we see God’s people needing a saviour. Jesus became the ultimate Saviour as predicted in the Old Testament and as recorded in the New Testament. He is still the only saviour who can redeem us today.
The blood of bulls and other animals could not atone for the sins of all. But the blood of Jesus is the atoning sacrifice for all. The call is for repentance and baptism through faith in Jesus Christ, the only sacrificial lamb. What’s your response to the message?
