Heidi Baker of Iris Global shares her thoughts about the Great Commission, which is part of the primary purpose and instruction Jesus gave to His followers after being resurrected from the dead.
Heidi talks of the Great Commission as the main reason we’re alive. In her words, she points out that we exist because of God who made us in His image and created the universe. Jesus commissioned us to go out there and let everyone know Him and discover how good He truly is.
She further talks about reaching out to every man, woman, and child from all walks of life and socioeconomic systems. Heidi expresses how the greatest privilege in all the world is getting to know God and becoming possessed by His Holy Spirit.
She summarizes that the Great Commission is more about going out there, seeking the lost and bringing them home to their Creator and their Daddy.
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
What sphere of society has the Holy Spirit been speaking to you about concerning the Great Commission? How has Heidi’s zeal for the lost touched you today?
We all have a part to play, and no part is too small or too big. All things are possible with God, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the Lord lead you and speak to you regarding your unique role in fulfilling the Great Commission. Jesus is coming quickly.
