Christ’s Sovereignty and Presence Precedes our Mission

Main point summary
Jesus’ mission for the church is to make disciples by baptizing them in the name of the Triune God and obeying everything Jesus commanded.
The eleven disciples traveled to Galilee,
to the mountain where Jesus had directed them.
When they saw him,
but some doubted.
Jesus came near and said to them,
“All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Is disciple-making as easy as baptizing and teaching obedience?
The relevance of Christ’s command to make disciples for the church today is rooted in his sovereign authority and his eternal presence.
Did Jesus give the Great commission to the ones who doubted too?
