The Three Constants of the Great Commission present in the first five books of the NT

Bob Roberts (one of our speakers at the next 300 leaders) has a great post today entitled The Three Constants of the Great Commission:

“First – the coming of the Holy Spirit which is the power to fulfill the Great Commission.  It is present in all passages from baptizing in the name of the “Father, Son & Holy Spirit” to being “clothed with power from on high” to “signs and wonders” that go as the Gospel is spread.  The lesson for us is clear – no Holy Spirit – no Great Commission fulfilled.  Jesus makes all that clear in his guidance in John 14-16.

The second thing is “Go” – but it’s really translated “as you are going”, in other words the Great Commission should be a daily experience not simply a geographical experience . . .  Spreading the good news of Jesus, loving others, building bridges, serving humanity in the name of Jesus must be a daily and lifestyle occurrence.

Third, “nations” is in all passages – one is ends of the earth. God cares for all peoples.  Christianity must always be cross cultural and multi-cultural – the only culture we share is Kingdom culture that lays over all cultures.  When that happens the Gospel will be the same, but expressed differently – and that gets exciting.
