The Story of Easter | Day Seven

SUNDAY, MARCH 31ST

On this awesome day, we'll spend time meditating on the cross, the empty grave and all that it has given us. But let's also meditate on the task this day calls us to "go and make disciples..."

The pure gospel that Christ passed on to His disciples was the good news of a grace to be passed on, not just received. Jesus left His disciples equipped to make other disciples, to bear fruit. We can tell it worked because the people that they made disciples of were making disciples too.

And so it has been passed on for two thousand years. But probably in every generation, certainly in ours, sometimes the gospel we spread mutates into something weaker. Instead of truly bearing fruit, we cultivate seedless grapes.

As we spend time worshiping and thanking God today for the grace we have received, let us pray to be more challenged than ever to pass on that grace and to live out the Great Commission.
