Jacob during the end of his life give a last message to his children, after finishing up his ditariknyalah sent a place lying and meninggallah it. So too with our parents, which was nearing his death will tell you something important and we are his children will listen intently because it was his last message. But there are different with the Lord Jesus Christ, he gave the last message not because he will die but rather to heaven.
If the last message of the Lord Jesus Christ?
In the Gospel of Matthew 28: 18-20. Before the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven, he gave his last message to his disciples, namely that all power in heaven and on Earth has been given to Jesus (18). All power! If that is not included in it? or power as if the Lord had? God created the universe, the Hebrew language created i.e. BARA, which has the sense of being nothing at all to be there. LORD Almighty knows that the needs of mankind of sin i.e. safety of eternal life. As it is written For LORD so loved the world (Jhon. 3: 16) that Jesus Christ deliberately limit the divinity came into the world. The involvement of Jesus in the life of mankind are sinners, he healed the sick, performed many miracles, the blind see, the deaf hear, the dead man in stir up, forgive those who sin and even deliberately limit the divinity to die on the cross to show how great his love. That’s the power that Jesus gave to his disciples, when the Holy Spirit descended upon them (acts 1: 8).
What about us, do we already have his power?
My brothers and sisters. When we were chosen by God to trust and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour then justification of Christ imputed to us and the sealing of the Holy Spirit once and for all. So we have his power to be able to love him and to love one’s neighbour.
Jesus Christ sent his disciples with a very noble goal is to make disciples of all Nations (19). After the Nations became the disciple of Christ, they were baptized in the name of God the father, son and holy spirit. Baptism is a symbol of the sinners who die as well as the resurrected with Christ enters in a family of the Kingdom of God.
Situ Lembang is where I first met directly with the President of the Republic of Indonesia Dr. h. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, he is a wise leader delivered a speech which is good but he can’t do all of the contents of his speech perfectly. Very different from Jesus Christ, who gave the command to his disciples (20a) because he’s been doing it perfectly. Jesus Christ is the Supreme Teacher teaches all aspects of his life with loving lest his disciples his imitation and glorify God. Likewise with those of us who believe in him became teachers who teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our teaching from the Bible originated because the Bible is the word of God.
So we as disciples of Christ must reaching high for his Kingdom, going deep into his word and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all Nations because of the Lord Jesus Christ be with us until the end of time (20b). Amin.
