In every one of the Gospel accounts Jesus told his followers to GO! Go and make disciples….go and preach…go and proclaim the kingdom….go and bear fruit…. The Gospel is an action-focused imperative to GO.
Matthew 28:19: Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Mark 16:15 He said to them, GO into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Luke 9: 60: GO and proclaim the kingdom of God.
John 15:16: I chose you and appointed you so that you might GO and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
Recently, I received a copy of a new magazine with “Good news in every issue.” It is filled with testimonies of ways in which people are fulfilling Christ’s mission in the world. I am happy to know some of the people involved in producing this publication and some of the people featured in this Summer 2017 issue.
