Last words are powerful. Whether it’s the last words of a speech or the last words of someone’s life; we tend to remember and hold on to last words. Today, let’s look at some of the last words of Jesus:
“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, to the end of the age.”
(Matthew 28:19-20 NIV)
These are some pretty powerful words that Jesus passed on to his disciples and are words for us as His followers today as well. These few sentences outline God’s basic desires for how we are to live our life. The word “go” really means “as you are going”. Pray today that as students “go” through their college years that it would be a time that they can truly make disciples of others, bringing friends to know Christ for the first time and grow in Him. As the new semester starts back up soon, pray that they would be a witness in their words and actions on their campuses, in their work places, in the dorms, and wherever they go. Ask God to remind them that they are never alone as they live out this call each and every day.
