>The Omission in the Commission

>What’s the “great commission”?

Did you include “obedience” in your definition?

Or is that the “omission” in the “commission”?

Here it is in the ESV (Matthew 28, 19,20) Go therefore and make disciples (not “decisions”) of all nations…teaching them to observe (obey) all that I have commanded you.”

I was reminded of this as I read Romans 15 this morning.

In verse 18 Paul states, “For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to bring the Gentiles to obedience – by word and deed,”

Yup, we are saved by grace through faith, but saved for the purpose of bringing forth good works. (Eph 2.8-10)

Work on!
