Easter (The Great Commission) – April 24, 2022

Matthew 28:16-20

Pastor David Cay

The way we respond to important events can make a big difference in our life. If we don’t respond properly we can miss out on what’s most important. So today, I’m going to talk about responding well to arguably the most important event in all of history.

So my main question today is: how do we respond to the news of the resurrection of Jesus?

This past Easter we celebrated the death and resurrection of Jesus. We celebrate Jesus’ victory over death. But what do we do after? There are many times people hear the story and they just walk away- some people respond with hostility.

There is a better response to the resurrection of Jesus – one that gives us a purpose and a mission.

Our Bible passage today comes from Matthew 28:16-20. These are Jesus’ instructions to his disciples after his resurrection.

Our Bible passage teaches us the right response to the resurrection is confident evangelism, and confident discipleship.
