15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news[a] to the whole creation. 16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16:15-16 NRSV
I think that you can see here that the disciples received a directive from Jesus, and through it, came to the realization that Jesus was not some kind of battle warrior, ready to overthrow the Romans. That was NOT what he was about. And they knew they had work : simply, spreading the message ( being witnesses ) that Jesus had died for the sins of the world and is victorious over death !!!
Let us pray please : Holy and Giving God, we believe that Jesus is indeed the Christ, the Lamb of God. Yes, though His great sacrifice we are saved from ourselves !! We want to be good witnesses , help us LORD to be strong and vigilant, help us to keep moving forward, sharing this Good News of salvation from You, our Father, and Jesus, our Savior, in whose name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
