{Matthew 28:18-20; NLT}

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,* baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

As we spend time in Scripture and in prayer, it’s important not to get sidetracked in trying to determine whether we’ve received an official call from God or whether we have a clear in indication that we are doing God’s will.  It’s too easy to get so caught up in the paralysis of analysis that we fail to act.

God has given us in Scripture a full revelation of his nature and his character.  And He has given us an unmistakably clear mandate to share him and his Word with those who have not heard.  What more do we need? If we focus on a daily basis—wherever we are—he will lead us where he wants us to go and to the people he wants us to reach.

Brother Andrew, The Calling, pp. 33-34

Questions to consider:

  • How have you been “caught up in the paralysis of analysis”? Why can this be so deadly to our calling?
  • What has God called every Christian to do?
  • What is the promise of Jesus as we go and make disciples?
