To think about… • Read the various eyewitness accounts of when Jesus assigned His mission in Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:8b, and Luke 24:47. How are they alike, and what unique points does each make that the other/s don’t? • Can you state the Christian mission in your own words? Would you say it’s your mission? If so, how does it affect you? • How have you tried to keep Jesus’ mission your priority? • Reread Luke 24:49 and explain why you think Jesus didn’t want them to move out until they had the Holy Spirit? Does that say anything to you? How do you personally try to access the Spirit’s power? • What scares you most about proclaiming the gospel message?
