Matt 28:18-20 instructs us....and it is for all who believe on the Name of the Lord JESUS. We all have a specific assignment that we are mandated to fulfill. It is to go and MAKE DISCIPLES. We believe that JESUS did not sacrifice Himself for us to be ordinary/average. But HE demonstrated DYNAMIC so that we can model and then be a role model for others! Now that you know the GREAT COMMISSION,
"GO AND MAKE..."
