Good morning you guys!! I hope you are all staying happy and healthy. Let's talk about some things you have learned in school. Do you think you know some of those things so well that you could teach someone else the same thing that you’ve learned?
I was wondering what you’ve learned so well in school that you might consider teaching it to others because that’s what we see happen in today’s scripture story.
In it, we hear Jesus tell his disciples to go and do what he’s done with them.
He tells his disciples to go out and find their own students and to teach them the same things that Jesus had taught to them, the disciples.
In other words, the disciples are being told that they have learned so well that they are now ready to teach like Jesus did.
And that is a pretty amazing thing, really, what Jesus is telling his disciples.
He’s telling them that they are able to teach others the very same things that Jesus had taught!
Matthew 28: 16-20
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When
they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore 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 that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus
who taught the disciples and us
how to better know you
and then teach others about you.
