Jesus Doesn’t Send A Christian To The Nations, But A Church (via Trevin Wax)

1 Comment

The church’s corporate life is its most profound witness of the Gospel.
From Trevin Wax:

The Great Commission was given to a community.
Western readers have tended to read the Great Commission passages (especially Luke 24 and Matthew 28) in light of the autonomous individual. We interpret the commissioning scenes as tasks assigned to individual Christians.
But a proper focus on the corporate dimension of these accounts helps us understand the commissionings in light of the identity Jesus bestows upon a community.
Jesus does not send a Christian to the nations, but a church.
