St. Paul School of Leadership & Discipleship

The story of “missions” is not a New Testament theme. It goes all the way back to Abraham’s call to be the father of nations and Israel’s commission to be God’s light to the world. But when Jesus Christ came in fulfillment of prophecy, the Great Commission became the privilege and responsibility of every believer. The gospel is literally “good news”—the historic facts of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus—and His offer of life eternal to all who trust Him as Messiah and Savior.

In Part 1 of this lesson, we began sharing scriptures and thoughts attached to the Great Commission from each of the 27 New Testament books. Part 1 took in Matthew through Second Corinthians. In this second lesson of this 3-part series, we will being with the book of Galatians. Don't forget to look up each scripture verse.


Galatians 6:1-2 Go as the restorer of others ("restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness")
Ephesians 3:8-9 Go with unsearchable riches ("that I should preach…. the unsearchable riches of make all men see")
Ephesians 6:19-20 Go with an unrestrained boldness ("that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel")
Philippians 2:15-16 Go as God's light to others ("shine as lights in the world")
Colossians 1:27-29 Go to make known the mystery ("this mystery...which is Christ in you")
I Thessalonians 1:5 Go as an example of your witnessing ("as you know what kind of men we were among ")
I Thessalonians 2:8 Go imparting your soul along with His story ("imparted unto you...our own souls")
II Thessalonians 1:11-12 Go to glorify only Jesus ("that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you”)
I Timothy 6:11-12 Go with a blameless conscience ("flee these things...follow righteousness...Fight the good fight...before many witnesses")
II Timothy 4:2 Go in season or out (filled with the Spirit regardless of feelings or fears) “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season”
Titus 3:8-9 Go sharing the importance of a new life and new conduct ("be careful to maintain good works...But avoid foolish questions")
Philemon 1 Go as Christ's prisoner. We were one’s prisoners of sin. Thank God, we are now prisoners of love. ("a prisoner of Jesus Christ")
Hebrews 12:1-2 Go with your eyes on the prize ("looking unto Jesus")

Today's world is like yesterday's - corrupt and filled with the chorus of "Every person to his/her own god, own choice, own life-style." That's why we who know the Lord will not be popular and must be prepared to suffer when we declare: "There is only one God, one Savior and one way. The answer is not in Buddha, Confucius, Mohammed or any other man or supposed deity. Thus saith the Lord!"
Why do so few Christians ever carry a missionary heart for the lost of the world? Years of observation have caused me to see it's because our glimpse of the Lord is more a glance than the long look that awes us with His holiness and stabs us with our own filthiness.
What I have shared with you are not profound secrets. On the contrary, they are merely the honest lessons of life I’ve learned the hard way in how to witness to my loved ones, neighbors and friends when they don’t want to listen. Now go to work loving your family members and others like they have never been loved before.
