16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Galilee is also mentioned in Matthew 4:15, quoting Isaiah 9:1-2. How is this prophesy being fulfilled in Jesus?
Jesus says all authority has been given to Him in heaven and on earth. How does this encourage you in your own evangelism?
Notice the order of Jesus' commission—to make disciples and baptize them. How does inform the order of belief and baptism?
When Jesus says, "teaching them to observe all I have commanded you," how do you see your current weekly rhythms of being in line with this command?
Matthew's gospel ends with a promise that Jesus will be with His disciples always. How does this promise comfort and empower you as you consider His command to make disciples?
If you are not planning to go to a different nation to proclaim the gospel, in what ways are you contributing to "all nations" aspect of the Great Commission?
