The Consequences Of The Great Commission
This unit looks at what happens to those who answer Jesus' call to follow him as his disciples and obey his commission to take the Good News of the kingdom of God to all nations. The cost of commitment is to share in Christ's sufferings as we take God's love to a world of sin, suffering and death. We look at how the call to be Christ's witnesses has resulted in the persecution of Christians down the centuries.
The unit also looks at a Christian approach to death and dying, at the way God can turn human tragedies into triumphs of his grace, and the crown that awaits those who seek to follow Jesus faithfully, obedient even to death if necessary.
