Matthew 28:16-20
16  Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them.
17  When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
18  And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20  teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

Have you enlisted in the mission Jesus has given to all His disciples?  We all have a mission Jesus has given us.  Our mission is to go.  Have you accepted your mission?  Have you accepted the call of discipleship?  Are you willing to share the gospel with all people?

Are you going in Jesus’ authority or your own authority?  Are you letting the Holy Spirit lead, or do you act on your own authority?  Do you doubt Jesus’ authority, His ability to use you to share the gospel?  Do you believe the Holy Spirit can do today what the Spirit did in the early church?  Are you willing to go wherever Jesus sends you?  Are you praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and for people willing to share the everlasting gospel?

We are hearing about the people who are not going back to work and the many businesses that need workers.  Jesus has the same problem.

Matthew 9:35-38
35  Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36  But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
37  Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38  Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."

Will you pray for the disciples who are not willing to go to work?  Will you pray for God to seen you into the harvest?

Isaiah 6:8
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

Are you willing to say with Isaiah, “Here am I! Send me.”
