“Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you…” Matthew 20:20
“Father, I tried my best, but I don´t have much time left, and there is still so much to be done”, said the veteran missionary while he prayed in front of a crowd of young people. Then he issued the call to serve Jesus in every space of life. It felt as if he was passing the baton to a new generation. He had run his leg of the race, and now it was time for others to do the same.
Your life legacy doesn´t end with you. It will continue with the ones you impact for God´s Kingdom for generations to come. God´s Kingdom is counting on the fact that we end well. But we also have to pass the baton to others–teaching them everything we know about Jesus, training and equipping them go into every space of life and be the light and salt the world needs.
Many in that crowd responded, surrendering their lives to everyday, everywhere service to Jesus. Will you do the same?
Who can you teach everything you know about Jesus? When will you start that process?
