The Great Commission has long been considered as one of Jesus’ most significant instructions for carrying the message of the Gospel into the world. Jesus’ words were not only “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,” but also “teach them everything that I have commanded you.” That would include healing, forgiving, and loving one another. Such Mission work needs to be Christ-like going. It is not just ‘go’, but ‘go therefore’ in the Spirit of Christ.
