Dr. David Shibley, The Great Commission, Sep 11, 2011

– the greatest thing I can do is to love the people of the world like Jesus does.
The Great Commission, Matt 28:19, Mark 16:16, Luke 24:47-48, John 20:21, Acts 1:8
10 reasons for why we go to the ends of the earth:
1. we go because Jesus is worthy (3 John 7)
2. we go because the Father is longing (2 Peter 3:9)
3. we go because the Spirit is moving (Habakkuk 1:5)
4. we go because the harvest is ripe (John 4:35) – when it’s harvest time, nothing is more important than harvesting until the season ends.
5. we go because people are lost (John 3:16, 2 Thess 1:7-9)
6. we go because nations are deserving (Rev. 15:4)
7. we go because we are commissioned (Matt 28:19)
8. we go because we will give an account before Christ (2 Cor. 5:10) – what am I doing with the resources God has given me?
9. we go because of the promises of God (Numbers 14:21, Habakkuk 2:14)
10. we go because we have a destiny (1 Peter 2:9)
