 Go and Tell |Devotional Reading: I Corinthians 15:12-22|Print: Matthew 28:1-15|April 21, 2019|Lesson taught by Deacon Will Woods, II-Superintendent
Devotional Reading:
Paul tells us that God raised Christ from the grave and that is the gospel. And it was foolish to think that the dead will not be raised from the grave. If the dead will not be raised, we have nothing to preach about and nothing to believe. More than that we will be lying about God. If God did not raise Christ from the dead we are still lost in sins. But the truth is Christ has been raised.
“Let us never starve a good cause, when we see a bad one so liberally supported. Money is a bait for the blackest temptation; mercenary tongues will sell the truth for it. The great argument to prove Christ to be the Son of God is His resurrection. Once a lie is raised, none know how far it will spread nor how long it will last nor what harm it, will do.” Matthew Henry Commentary on Matthew chapter 28
Lesson Objective: Matthew 28:18-20–18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go [a]therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
