Why is it that inspirational videos go viral online? What about these videos makes us want to take the action to share them with others? It’s because we want to be inspired. We are wired to be inspired. God created us to take action and carry out his work. What is his work? His work is pretty succinctly stated in Matthew 28 verse 19 and 20. It says “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, and teaching them to obey everything i have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the end of the age.” This is the great commission. Jesus last command to the disciples and to his future disciples: us.
We have been given the task to bring people into a relationship with God. The fun part is there are an unlimited number of ways God does this. For some it’s through major acts of love. For others it’s through relationships. Some are discipled for life in a family and a church community. Some are introduced much later in life. The Gospel inspires us to love others so that we will have the opportunity to introduce those we come into contact with the source of our joy and love: Jesus.
This site will be a place of Gospel focused inspiration. We want to tell the stories of the great commission being carried out. The stories will come from the people being helped and the people helping, knowing that God works through everyone involved to bless and strengthen the faith.
The hope is that as you read these stories, you will be inspired to act on the great commission in new ways and you will share the inspiration with others.
