We Tell Others Because Worship Includes Obedience (7 of 7)

Matthew 28:17-20

Keywords: obedience; worship; testify; witness; sharing faith; Jesus; commands

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 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, baptizing them in a 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.
