    I greet you, my name is Ben Biggs and I like to share with you and the world about the question that arise by people who came to faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
    Greetings, and love to hear from you.

    Brothers ,what shall we do?

    The great Commission from Jesus Christ to His disciples, and us 2000 years later are found in two places written in the Holy Bible.

    We read inMatthew28,19: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
    And then we read in Mark16,15-16: He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptize will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
    -------------
    The good news and the promise from God to us is captured in John3,16: For God so loved the world (people) That he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him (Jesus) shall not perish (here follow his promise) but have eternal life.
    Galatians3,22: But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promise, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
    Galatians3,29: If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham´s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
    -------------
    Now we must take note of what Jesus command his disciples and us today.
    He (Jesus) said go and preach, teach the good news that every body can be saved to all people, he did not said; go and asked the scientist, the wise men, the disbelievers , the quarrelsome what they think and how they feel about the message. ´´No´´ He said, just tell them, make sure they understand your message and point out the alternative for those who do not want to believe, they will be condemned.
    Condemned can best be understood by; reveal his or her life ( thoughts, words, and deeds)
    Matthew3,11 He (Jesus) answered and said unto them. Because it is given unto you (disciples) to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
    ------------------
    The command of Jesus to his followers is two-folded.
    The one part of his command is to preach the good news that every-one can be saved through his or her believe in Jesus Christ.
    The other part of the command is to tell the people that came to believe, what is now expected from them to do.
    ------------
    Example.
    In Acts 2 we learn how the disciples receive the Holy Spirit and start to execute the command that Jesus gave them.
    In verse 37 we read: When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart, they understand and believe the message but felt there was something they must do, but was not sure what.
    We read they turn their need to Peter and the other apostles and ask, Brothers, what shall we do? This question also apply to each of us 2000 years later who came to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.

    Now Peter filled with the Holy Spirit, and with the courage of his believe, faith and knowledge answer them and us today.
    Acts2,38 Peter replied, Repent (come to faith in Christ) and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ (why in the name of Jesus) for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    Acts10,43 All the prophets testify about him(Jesus) that everyone who believe in him (Jesus) receives forgiveness of sins through his name. (Jesus)
    The name of Jesus Christ represent (take note, not cancel out) his blood spilled at the cross for our sins.
    Acts19,5 On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

    What is your answer to people who came to faith in Jesus Christ and ask. Brothers what shall we do?
