 Mark 16, 15-16

I.  What had he done that warrants this command?

1.  He atoned for all sin–died for all men.

2.  Promised the Spirit to reprove the world–all men–of sin.

3.  Had received all power–authority–in heaven and on earth.

II.  How he commands his disciples to preach this gospel to all the world.–“Co-laborers–Witnessed these things”

1.  Peter held back till the vision convinced him.

2.  Still the church was slow and persecution arose, scattering them.

III.  

1.  We are not to question but to obey.  “He that believeth is baptized and shall be saved.”–Our part is to preach him; the rest belongs to God.

2.  The church has no right to exist save as she tries to save sinners.  We know to do good; will we do it?  Heaven stoops to help us, the world waits to receive us.  While we wait they die!  Thou haste to the rescue!!
