THE COMMAND TO EVANGELIZE

MATTHEW 28:18-20

INTRO:

THE CHURCH HAS MANY RESPONSIBILITIES! WE ARE TO LOVE, ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER; WE ARE TO CONTINUE IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST; WE ARE TO WAIT PATIENTLY ON THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH; THERE ARE MANY THINGS WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR, HOWEVER, CHRIST GIVES A SOLEMN COMMAND TO HIS FOLLOWERS AS HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, WHICH IS TO BE OBEYED AND CARRIED OUT UNTIL THE RAPTURE.

LET’S STUDY THE COMMAND TO EVANGELIZE!
