Tuesday Family Devotion - Spread the Word

Scripture Reading- Matthew 28:16-20

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Thought of the Day
We’ve already covered a lot of the gifts that God has given us, but in today’s reading Jesus asks something of us. We are called to go to tell other people about those gifts we’ve been given. Jesus calls us to spread the Word of God, to share the story of Jesus with the world. He calls us to baptize others and teach them about God and His love for us. If we take the good we’ve been given seriously, we have to take this call from God seriously as well. This Great Commission is given to us all, from the shortest to the tallest person. We all can share God’s Word in the world.

Discussion questions
1. What are some ways we can share God’s story with the world?

2. Who are some people that you could tell about God?

3. Why should we tell others about God’s Word?

Dear Jesus,
You’ve called us to a big task, but we know that we can do it with your help. Give us the words to help spread your story across the world. Help us live as examples of your Word in the world. AMEN.
