Go and Tell Together

Re:Verse passage – John 20:19-23 (day seven)

as the Father has sent Me, I also send you. vs 21

This is the Johannine great commission. Though Matthew’s account is the most recognized one, each Gospel has a moment towards the end of the book where Jesus commissions the disciples (and us as well) to Go and Tell. Here we find the disciples huddled together in fear behind a locked door. There is beauty in this picture though. As often as we critique these individuals for their fear, we lose sight that they were together. They knew they were Better Together. Jesus had commanded and prayed that this group would stand together and grow together. This objective had been completed. Now it was time to Go and Tell His story together. It was time to open the door and go do something.

As we move our rally cry from Better Together to Go and Tell, we can know that our strength is in our cohesion, we are stronger and Better Together. Imagine how strong we can be as we Go and Tell His story together. It is time for us to open the door and go do something.

  1. Looove this! Better together! I LOVE that your church FBCSA hs adopted this phrase..you are truly a community! Rick, thank you again for your beautiful words encouraging community.. the 11 disciples were Jesus community and the start of what would be a huge community! In verse 16 of Matthew 28, Jesus appointed the meeting place to meet with these 11! I love it ..go and tell together! Thank you Rick and FBCSA.
