VerseD: Matthew 28:19

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,
Matthew 28:19, ESV

The Father begot the Son, and they send the Holy Spirit. Because of Christ’s authority shared with us through the Spirit, let us glorify the Father by bringing in to the faith as many as He gives us to win over.

That means GO OUT and make disciples!

Then the glory of the Lord went out from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim.
Ezekiel 10:18, ESV

Paul tells us that the Church is the house of God (1 Timothy 3:15). His glory proceeds from the house, and we have been commissioned, as the Church, to carry His glory to the world. He helps carry us along as we are sent out.

VerseD: Luke 24:51

As he was blessing them, he departed from them and was taken up into heaven.

Imagine seeing your friend, who you now know is also your God risen from the dead, leaving you again.

But this time you have a mission He has blessed.

And you know He is coming back to be with us.

Forever.
