Being Part of Something Huge

Every person wants their life to mean something. Nothing causes depression more effectively than the gnawing sensation that, no matter how hard we try, our lives don’t matter.

On the day Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, he shattered any notion that his followers would lead meaningless existences. He gave them just one directive, but what a command it was:

“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.”

As a disciple of Jesus, you are part of that mission. At the time he first sent out his disciples, there were only about 120 who trusted in him as their Savior and Lord. Today, people who call themselves “Christian” number in the billions. And yet, there are still billions of people needing to hear the message of Christ’s forgiveness and to have contact with his representatives in this world.

Jesus offers us the opportunity to be part of something not only worldwide, but eternal. Now that is huge!
