Matthew 28:18-20

People love to quote verses 19 and 20. They're some of the most famous verses out of the Bible. But people like to leave out the first word of verse 19..."so". Which means that verse is set up by what is before it "Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All power in heaven and on earth is given to me.'" It's awesome to realize the implications of this. Jesus has all power in heaven and on earth. There is nothing he can't do. Since he is control of everything we are supposed to go and make disciples. So we'll go out and do the grunt work, but it's under the authority of Jesus. It's like He's saying that we can't fail. There is nothing that we do for God that won't succeed. He's got all the power in heaven and on earth. That's just cool to think about. JM
