Go to all peoples everywhere
Matthew 28: 16-20
16 The eleven disciples went to the hill in Galilee where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him, even though some of them doubted. 18 Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptise them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”
Me??? Who me????
You have to be joking – go out into the world to all peoples everywhere...
But I am just a woman from a wee town in Fife...why me???
I am no good at this sort of thing, what would I say, what would I do?
Lord, thank you...thank you for telling me you will be with me always, to the end of the age.
That is a comfort, a strength and a power that will lift me up and drive me on.
How wonderful it is to know that I belong to your family,
and you love me so much you have asked me to tell others about how amazing you are.
Thank you, for the joy and the honour, the privilege and the trust you have placed on my shoulders.
I feel blessed. I feel incredible.
