What is the Task?
In some of his last words on Earth, Jesus instructed his followers:
“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matt. 28:19 (NIV)
This task became known as the Great Commission, and it is a call handed not just to those earliest disciples, but to every follower of Jesus.
Much progress has been made since the task was assigned—in fact,we are living in exciting times where our generation has the potential to be the first to see every tribe, people, and tongue reached with the Good News of Jesus.
However, there are challenges to overcome and barriers to break through together. Some people groups live in places where speaking the name of Jesus is forbidden. Others lack the ability to access the Bible in their language. Others still wait for local believers to cross cultural divides. Today there are hundreds of Unengaged, Unreached People Groups (UUPGs) of over 500 people who are beyond the reach of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, approximately 6 million people without access to the light of the Gospel.
You, your church, or your organization can play a role in finishing the task assigned in the Great Commission, bringing the transformational hope of Jesus to the places that need it most.
