This Could Be Fun!!!

Some of you may want to take up this challenge and run with it.

I'm reading through the Gospels in light of the Great Commission being the "main" thing.

Many believers and leaders in America see the Great Commission as one of many "main" things.

Here we go:

If you would try real hard you can do this. Read the Gospel as if the Great Commission is the "main" thing for every believer -the Church! What I am finding (thanks to Pastor Terry Goodwin -leader of our new Church in St. Louis) is that the meaning of every Jesus action and parable has a deepening meaning and missional flow I have never seen before.

After you do this exercise, let me know what you experience and if you are finally convinced (if not already) to accept the Supremacy of the Great Commission.

We started doing this at our Monday night group this week. We are doing a study of the Red Letters. We started in Matthew and we stop every time we get to red letters. It is amazing how much is in those letters when you stop and dwell on them. Try this and you will see the Temptation of Christ in a whole new way. Be sure to cross reference the Old Testament - the message was there as well.
