Christ's Mission Mandates (Part 1)
As Christians we have been commanded by Jesus to go out and make disciples from among every nation on Earth (Matt. 28:19-20), but does Jesus have a particular way that He wants us to go about this mission? In Matthew 10 Jesus sends His disciples out on a mission that would come to serve as a precursor to His Great Commission, and before He sent them He gave them instructions regarding how He wanted them to approach this mission. From this instruction we can learn several valuable lessons about what Jesus expects of us in our pursuit of the Great Commission. Ryan explains one of these lessons in part one of a three-part study of Matthew 10:5-15, "Christ's Mission Mandates."
