Gospel – 5/24/20 – Matthew 28:16-20
The eleven disciples went to Galilee,
to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.
When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.
Then Jesus approached and said to them,
“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Graduation day. Everyone is invited to a special place – mountain in Galilee.
Commencement given by the best professor ever – Jesus.
We hear how He’s moving upstairs but has been given these gifts which He will share with us. But He also says we no longer get to sit in class learning, watching in awe as He does amazing things.
Now, we become the teachers, doing amazing things in all the nations around the world and being observed in awe by others.
He gives us our commission – our great work – our responsibility to Him and to those we teach. He promises us He will always be there for us – even to the end of time.
Then, He heads upstairs where we can’t see Him.
But, he’s watching.
At least that’s what I heard Him say…
