Expect Great Things from God

Preacher:
Passage: Matthew 28:18-20

18 Jesus came near and said to them,“All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Verse 18 – Jesus rules over us with universal authority.

18 Jesus came near and said to them,“All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. 

  • Jesus draws near to us.
  • Jesus is Lord over all.

Verses 19-20a – As the one with all authority, Jesus determines the course of our lives.

19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.

  • We are to make disciples…
    • of all nations 
    • by going
    • by baptizing
    • by teaching obedience

Verse 20b – As the one who determines the course of our lives, Jesus promises to be with us always. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

  • Because God is with us…
    • we can go fearlessly
    • we can go confidently
