We now have just 2 Sundays left here at Gaylord E-Free before we add an additional Contemporary Service to our Sunday morning worship schedule. We have put all of the logistical information out for our church family to know. But to ensure that everyone is up to date and how things will work, we are going to take the next 2 Sunday mornings to explain it all and prepare our hears for this through a 2-week mini-series called "Daily Double" that will have a JEOPARDY game show feel to it.
Along with giving all of the logistical information, this Sunday we will also revisit the Great Commission that Jesus gave to His disciples (and ultimately to we who are His followers today) before He ascended back into heaven. This is the ultimate reason that we are adding another service. Matthew 28:19-20 says,
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Below are some questions for you to consider that we will answer about this passage on Sunday:
What is the one main verb in the Great Commission?
What are the three participles in the Great Commission?
What is the purpose of a participle in grammar?
How do we see the need for ENERGY in the Great Commission?
In Mark 16:15 (another passage where Jesus gives the great commission) - what is the first step of energy that the disciples needed to take to accomplish the Great Commission?
How do we see the need for EVANGELISM in Matthew's account of the Great Commission?
In Mark 16:15, what is the only message that is part of the Great Commission that needs to be shared?
Read 1 Corinthians 9:22 - How does the word "saturation" fit into evangelism?
How do we see the need for EDUCATION in Matthew's account of the Great Commission?
