The Great Commision

Doubt is a reality in Christian faith. Faith, in it’s very essence, is the “assurance of things hoped for, the confidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). After His death and resurrection, Jesus is standing in front of His disciples, teaching them, and yet still “some doubted.” How could they possibly doubt? Or maybe you are thinking: How am I supposed to tell others about Jesus when His own disciples struggled with belief? When I have moments of doubt?

Rather than let this discourage you, let it encourage you. The Apostles struggled to believe, they were easily distracted, and doubt was a reality in their lives. And yet Jesus still loved them, provided for them, and was gracious toward them, even in their doubt. The fact that you doubt does not disqualify you from Kingdom blessings or Kingdom work. Do not let your doubt cause you to be silent about your faith. Instead, be honest about your doubt’s with those you’re sharing with

Press into the Lord for answers, and He will be faithful. As we grow in our relationship with Jesus, ask Him to answer your own questions and doubt.

The Great Commission is the calling for each believer to go and spread the news of Jesus and what this means for everyone who believes. What people tend to forget is the promise associated with this charge. Jesus said, “I am with you always.”

When you are obedient in sharing the news of His love and peace, praying for someone who doesn’t know Him, keeping your faith even when it costs us some reputation, Jesus says that He is with you. He is always with you. He goes before you, stands behind you, and walks along with you.
