As Jesus meets with His disciples after His resurrection, His focus is on the mission of God. Jesus tells us “I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth.” Imagine this if you will.
Welcome to the transformed podcast.
Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California reminds us today that no one has greater authority than Jesus! Your Lord and Savior has total and absolute control over everything and everyone on this Earth – as well as in Heaven! Since this is true, He commissions you and me to the astronomical task of world conversion!
Let’s open our Bible to Matthew 28 as we answer the question, “Where do we start in living out God heart every day?”
