The Great Commission for the church,
the Body of Christ
Presented by John Klasen
Most of Christianity today will immediately turn to Matthew chapter 28 for what is commonly referred to
as the Great Commission for the church of today.
But it is important to understand that this cannot be so, for a number of reasons,
that the commissions recorded in the gospel accounts of
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as that in Acts 1:8,
are commissions which were never intended for the church today.
The commission for the church of today is to be found in 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, and is intimately connected to the gospel of the grace of God - which is the only gospel which has the power to save a person today.
As ambassadors for Christ, it is incumbent upon every believer to know what the different gospel messages in the Bible are all about, and to understand exactly what the gospel of the grace of God is, and what it is not, and how the Satanic policy of evil has corrupted and perverted that very gospel, in it's attempt to subvert the eternal destiny of anyone who desires to be saved.
