Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
16 So the eleven talmidim went to the hill in the Galil where Yeshua had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they prostrated themselves before him; but some hesitated. 18 Yeshua came and talked with them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim, immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, yes, even until the end of the age.”
New International Version (NIV)
The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Good morning, Family:
I’m not sure if you noticed this morning, but I listed today’s scripture passage from two different translations.
Yes, they are worded a little differently, but the message is exactly the same. We were given instructions to tell all who would listen and receive, the wonderful life changing message of Jesus (Yeshua).
Today is the last day of 2018. This past year, for many of us, was a year of training, positioning and obedience. I’m sure that 2019 will be a year of getting used to our new placement. It is in my spirit to tell you this….
“DONT GO BACK TO WHAT IS FAMILIAR. DO NOT FEAR THE NEW LAND, JUST BECAUSE IT IS UNKNOWN. JESUS PROMISED TO BE WITH US UNTIL THE END OF THE AGES.”
2019 will be a year of putting all of your training to work. This year is the year of divine placement.
Go in PEACE while joyfully serving the Lord.
