As we conclude our Easter series, “Every knee shall bow”, we look at the events after the resurrection where Jesus appeared to his disciples and clarified the truth of who he is. These 40 days culminated when he gave the Great Commission and ascended into heaven to sit down at the right hand of the Father, signifying his kingship and authority over all creation. And we, his followers, are sent to declare the incredible wonder of who he is to the ends of the earth.
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
