Matthew 28:19-20: "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands i have given you. And be sure of this: i am with you always, even to the end of the age."
The great commission is what this little portion of scripture is called. So then why did i title this the masters commission? Because that is where i am at in my life, in a worldwide program called "Masters commission".
If you have never heard of it...that's understandable. Although Masters reaches to most places on earth, most programs are relatively small. But the heart behind them is enormous.
the point of Masters is to raise up the Youth of the world and prepare them to be in the ministry. This could be anything from pastors, to worship leaders, to musicians, to missionaries. My particular masters has a very special focus on the arts (painting, worship, drama, and dance are all a part of our ministry). and we are raising up the Gold of New England (a spiritual dead zone, sad as it is) to send us back out to the NATIONS for Christ.
Masters is a wonderful opportunity for anyone looking to fulfill the last great commission that Jesus gave to us. I have been in the program for 7 months now and would never take it back. It has opened my eyes to the wonder and glory of Christ. I gave up what i thought was the future God had for me (i realize now i was far off) to go here, and my life is never going to be the same. We focus hard on a personal relationship with Jesus, and use all of the gifts that we have been given to go out and make disciples of all nations.
In May we are taking a trip to Guatemala (which is going to be an amazing experience!) and i cannot wait. It is going to be a total evangelical trip to bring Christ to a nation that needs Him.
So why am i telling you all this? Not because i was paid to advertise, but because i want to see the youth of this WORLD raised up for Christ. I want to see the words of the prophets dripping from the lips of the next generation, raised up in Christ, and this is an amazing opportunity. It is a movements started some 25 years ago, and has spread across the globe and is the perfect opportunity for anyone going into ministry, or somebody who just LOVES Christ.
If you want to, you can even earn you full four year college degree IN Masters. (This may only be my Masters though, I'm not sure how many other Masters do this)
So here is the website for my Masters http://www.newenglandmc.com/
And to a website with most Masters affiliates http://mcin.org/
On the latter link click locate a Masters and then click the box that says locate to see the one Based in the USA. There are several in Europe and one i know of in South Africa, so those are not all of them are on this website.
So there you have it. A kid who 7 months ago could have cared less about what God had for him, who only wanted Girls and his guitar, is sitting here typing a lengthy blog about how he wants to see the Youth of the WORLD raised up for Christ. The changing power of Christ is great, because while Guitar still sits high on my priority list, it is all but invisible on that list with so much God sitting right above it.
Maybe your young, or you know somebody young who wants to change the world, well this is a great place to start, and get everything you need from God to go out and change the world.
