MATTHEW 28:16-20  (also in MARK 16:15-18)

16 Meanwhile, the eleven disciples were on their way to Galilee, headed for the mountain Jesus had set for their reunion.
17 The moment they saw him they worshiped him. Some, though, held back, not sure about worship, about risking themselves totally.
18 Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: "God authorized and commanded me to commission you:
19 Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
20 Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I'll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age."

Kate's Notes:  (One Year With Jesus)....Jesus' words affirm the reality of the Trinity. He did not say baptize them into the names, but into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The word Trinity does not occur in Scripture, but it well describes the three-in-one nature of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

GO AND TELL

      God gave Jesus authority over heaven and earth. On the basis of that authority, Jesus told His disciples to make more disciples as they preached, baptized, and taught. With this same authority, Jesus still commands us to tell others the Good News and make them disciples for the Kingdom. We are to go-whether it is next door or to another country-and make disciples. It is not an option, but a command to all who call Jesus "Lord." We are not all evangelists in the formal sense, but we have all received gifts that we can use to help fulfill the great commission. As we obey, we have comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is always with us.
