Raison d’être

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising 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 (Matthew 28:19-20).

Ever wondered about the purpose of your existence? Maybe you’re still wondering about it. Well, wonder no more… Matthews 28:19-20 is rather explicit in giving believers direction in this regard. The purpose of my existence is not merely about praise and worship; not merely about fellowship… then God would’ve taken me to heaven after being born again. No, praise, worship and fellowship with fellow believers serves to equip and empower me to fulfil my purpose… my purpose is simply to “therefore go and make disciples of all nations…”

That is the Great Commission, given to us directly by our King, Jesus Christ. That is the reason for our existence…

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I realize that Your commission is also the reason for my existence. I however feel ill equipped to heed to Your call. Please equip me by Your Spirit. Thank you for Your promise that You will be with me always.
