Matthew 9:35-38 This Great Commission Vision immediately preceded the first commission of the disciples- Matthew 10:1-42, reiterated much more briefly in Mark 6:7-13. So immediately prior to the actual sending of the disciples is a declaration of the need and the possibilities of gospel witness. In our text this morning, we discover both need and possibility. If we could create a mathematical equation, we might say that need + possibility = opportunity! We may say that life is our profound opportunity to invest, to serve God with an eye toward the future, to spend our time in meaningful, profitable, and fulfilling ways- and this text gives us some specifics about the best investment of our life.
