Week 4: Go Tell It On The Mountain

Apr 5, 2024


Take a moment and be still. Pray as the Lord would lead you: praise Him, confess your sin to Him, thank Him for the grace you have received, and ask of Him according to His will and your desires! Pray that as you read from His word, that the Lord would make His truth clear to you to align your heart with His.

Prayer is a very important part of this time, spending time with the Lord is more than just reading His book: it is a conversation!


Matthew 28:16-20, “But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. When they saw Him, they worshipped Him; but some were doubtful. And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”


This is one of the most important passages of scripture: The Great Commission. In this passage, jesus commands His followers to go forth and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to observe the rest of the commandments given in scripture. In short: share the gospel without discrimination or partiality. For some of us this is easy, but for most of us this is extremely difficult.

For me, my mind becomes flooded with questions of anxiety: What will they think of me? What if they want to argue? What if I make them upset? What if things get awkward?

We are given hope to remedy these anxieties at the end of the Commission, “I am with you always, even to the end of the ago.” As we go into a time of preparing missions and going on missions, know that if you go in His name you do no go alone! He will be with you and speak through you. As Christians it should be our joy as ambassadors for Christ to share His good news with people that desperately need to hear it! When we go we bring the gospel, and with the gospel we bring Christ, and with Christ comes life!



  1. What are some anxieties you have about sharing the gospel?
  2. Do you believe that the gospel is good news? Has it been good news to you?
