In The Christian and Missionary Alliance, the first priority of every minister, congregation, and believer is to work for the evangelization of the world. Healthy churches producing healthy disciples who are devoted to reaching lost people will hasten the completion of the Great Commission and the return of Jesus Christ. Completing the Great Commission will require the mobilization of every fully devoted disciple.
“Eight days later his disciples were in the house again . . . Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you.’” If they had understood that the Spirit who had raised Christ from the dead had now been given to them, why were they still huddling behind locked doors? Let’s leave them for a moment, and let me ask us: are we still huddling in some locked place of fear, not fully understanding or experiencing that which the Spirit of God wants to grant to us and do in us?
