Continue the Mission – Luke 24:44-53
Repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem” (Luke 24:47)
In Jesus’ name, repentance and forgiveness are to be proclaimed to all nations. All nations mean everybody. Not just Jews. Start in Jerusalem, but then continue with everybody who is left. Proclaiming God’s grace to everybody created the church. Jesus gave us a gift. He reconciled us with God. And he gave us a purpose. Tell and retell the ancient story that started at the dawn of humanity, that continued with the patriarchs and the prophets, that went from Jesus to the disciples and that we have received from those who came before us. Declare God’s love to all nations.
