Discipleship | Lesson 12 | Devotion 2
Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
Have you ever had someone tell you, “the least you can do is ask.” Most of the time, this statement may apply to asking a favor of someone or sometimes it could be negative because you failed to ask for permission. Whatever the case may be, it is true that the least we can do is ask.
In the Great Commission, God commands us to go, win, baptize, and teach. While this plan is simple and very doable, we must be willing to ask a question. As we go, we should be constantly willing to ask the greatest of all questions, “If you died today, do you know for sure you would got to Heaven?” Wow! You are probably already thinking about some excuses of why you wouldn’t ask that question. It may offend someone, or it may make someone feel awkward. Without asking people, how will they ever know? WIthout asking people, how will they ever hear the Gospel? Without asking people this important question, how will we ever get to the other parts of the Great Commission?
If you knew that you could impact someone’s life eternally, how far would you be willing to go? The Gospel changes people’s lives. If the power of the Gospel can revolutionize someone’s, the least that we can do as Christian is ask.
