Tonight we started a new series, “Go” in our youth service. We took a look at Matthew 28:19-20. It’s a familiar passage to most Christians, but we broke it down into sections and tried to dissect it a bit.
One of the points I made was that the phrase “therefore, go” is better translated as “in your going” or “having gone” (it’s an aorist passive). The idea here is that we are already going and proclaiming something. We don’t make the decision to go and teach, but rather, we have the ability to choose what we are proclaiming with our life. You and I are already communicating a message with our lives. The real question is, what message are you sending?
