Some little (short) words have big meanings. Take the word “all” for example. “All” leaves no room for anything else. Do “all” this work. Clean up “all” your toys. Give me “all” your money. See what I mean?

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

In Matthew 28:18-20, we have been given an example so very clear. “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 lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.’”

From these verses we learn:

1. Jesus has “all” authority. This means there is no authority for anyone else.

2. The Gospel is to be preached to “all” nations. This means there is no place where the Gospel is not preached.

3. “All” the commandments of Jesus are to be taught and obeyed. You can’t pick and choose those commandments you like.

4. Jesus promises to be with you always. There is no place you can go where he cannot help you.

YOU KNOW, “ALL” IS A REALLY BIG WORD, ISN’T IT?
