When Christ appeared to Peter and other disciples he gave them a Great Commission.The Great Commission is still relevant and a command for us today. Every person who believes in Jesus has a responsibility to share the gospel. This doesn’t mean that you have to travel to another country. Some are called to go, some to stay, some to give, and some to pray. All of Christ’s disciples have been given the Great Commission, to share the Gospel-the good news about Jesus-because everyone needs to hear.
"What I received I passed on to you as of first importance; that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures." 1 Cor. 15:3-4
