Are You a Bridge or a Stumbling Block?

For the poor you will always have with you in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’” (Deut 15:7-11)

Matthew 28:18-19, God’s Word.

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  Matthew 28: 18-19

When Jesus ordered His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, with the divine authority given to Him, He inevitably charged those accepting the order to obey. Obedience is key to glorifyin

In addition, Jesus empowered those who had accepted Him as Lord and Savior to make believers out of nonbelievers. To reveal that “All authority in heaven and on earth was given to Him to carry out the mission echoes the urgency, significance, and divinity of the assignment.”

To fully appreciate Matthew chapter 28, we must read the entire chapter, especially the part about “The Great Commission.” The Great Commission in Matthew 28:16–20, took place on a mountain in Galilee.

For the poor you will always have with you in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’” (Deut 15:7-11)

There is no bridge more significant in the life of the lost than the bridge Christians create by witnessing and spreading the GospelOne definition of “bridge” is a structure carrying a road, path, railroad, or canal across a river, ravine, road, railroad, or other obstacles. The Gospel can be viewed as a divine structure designed to transport sinners out of a life of damnation to one promising salvation.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2: 15 KJV

To lead people across spiritual bridges “the space between God and the world” requires faith, compassion, and authority to do so. The first order of business for leaders of any kind, especially believers, and messengers of God is to establish confidence, which transcends authorit
