While Lent and Easter focus on what God has done for sinners, Ascension and Pentecost highlight the command he gives to his forgiven children: “Go!”
Our forefathers in the faith proclaimed God’s truth, first with the apostles sharing eyewitness accounts and then with early church leaders using the Scriptures to continue to pass on the gospel message. Prof. Daniel Balge traces this path in “God’s solid foundation.”
The directive to make disciples continues with us today: mothers to their children and you to neighbors and acquaintances. As we all plant seeds of the gospel in the people around us, God will make those seeds grow and expand his kingdom to his glory.
