Evangelism: Reaching Others for Christ (3 of 5)
Series: 5 Purposes
David Cawston
Matthew 22:37-39; Matthew 28:19-20

This series is built on two most important scriptures of the Bible

They are:

The Great Commandment:

Matt 22:37-39
37 '''Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' (NIV)

The Great Commission

Matt 28:19-20
19 ''go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.'' (NIV)

There are 5 purposes defined for each of us in these two selections of verses that make up the totality of God's purposes in our lives individually and for the church collectively.

These five purposes are the foundation of this series of messages.
1. ''Worship''
''Love the Lord with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind''
2. ''Ministry''
''Love your neighbor as yourself''
3. Evangelism''
''Go make disciples''
4. ''Fellowship
''Baptizing them''
5. ''Maturing''
''Teaching them to obey''

When God created Adam he commanded him saying
Gen 1:28
28 ''Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.'' (NIV)

It was God's intent that man would occupy the earth with himself in co-ruler ship with Him.

Of course that plan was thwarted by sin! Man though did fill the earth with himself.

The second Adam, Jesus Christ, gave the command in our scripture reading today.
Matt 28:18-19
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, ''All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.'' (NIV) ...
