If you had to choose one of the above, which would it be? The Great Commission was issued by Jesus to His disciples and every subsequent generation of his disciples to “go” from where? The Local Church? It seems unlikely. It seems that they were to go from their normal lives as stationary people into a mode of sent-ness. They were to go from Judea, Samaria, and other geographical locations. They were to go from ethnic exclusivity to ethnic diversity. They were to go from where the gospel is known to where it is not.
What do you think?
Is the church to be a base of operations, a gas station, or a rest stop along the way?
