Matthew 28:19 ” Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”
As I watched this one plant grow and reproduce, my thoughts turned toward God’s Word. Jesus Christ’s last words of instruction to His followers (and which are for us also) before He ascended into heaven was “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…..” As we “Go” about our daily lives we are to be living, speaking witnesses for Jesus Christ. First and most importantly, in our homes before our husbands, our children and our family, our lives, in word and action, should reflect Jesus Christ; then to our friends and fellow Christians, then to our neighbors and those we meet daily; then to the city where we live; then to our own country; then to the world as we give and pray and perhaps are even called by God to go to some foreign land.
As we follow Christ’s command to “Go” and labor, we are not left without encouragement for we have the wonderful promise in
I Corinthians 3:6, “…God gave the increase.” As the Easter Lily has grown from one to twelve plants, so God will bless our commitment and witness for Him. Therefore, boldly let us “Go.”
The Better Way: Like Ezra, Let Us Prepare Our Hearts To “Seek The Law Of The Lord, To Do It (Obey) And To Teach.” Ezra 7:10
