Many of us grew up on stories told in books and movies in which we imagined what it might be like to live in that world. The world of George Lucas in a galaxy far, far away, where we imagine what it might be like to be a Jedi knight, or perhaps a smuggler. Or perhaps it was the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, where we imagine ourselves in Middle Earth, joining the fellowship to destroy the one ring of power in the fires of Mount Doom. Who would we be in these stories? What would be our purpose?
While these are the things of fanciful imaginations, there is a story in which we have a part and a purpose. This is God's story, set in the world He created, and we are its characters. Today's lesson is the second part in our look at "Living in Light of the Risen Lord," in which we discover we are part of God's continuing story of the Gospel. And we not only have a part to play, but also a purpose.
What is our purpose? As the Lord met with His eleven remaining disciples in Galilee, He instructed them to go. Go and make disciples of all nations. But what does it mean to be a disciple? And does this apply to us today?
Thank you for listening to today's message. May you be blessed and encouraged through the teaching of God's Holy Word.
