What are the apostles delegated to do in Jesus’ name? To make disciples of all the nations, to baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and finally to teach them all the commands I gave you.
Disciples in the Gospel of Matthew are people who leave the world and go up the mountain to be taught by Jesus (Mt 5 v.1). We are familiar with sacramental Baptism as a sacrament of initiation. The commands of Jesus are to love one another and to forgive unconditionally.
Today we as disciples are told by Jesus to GO. It is a command, not a polite dismissal. We are told to take with us all the delegated authority that Jesus has in heaven and on earth. We are told to lead people to Jesus, baptise them and teach them the commands of Jesus.
