The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.(A) 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.(B) 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,(C) baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,(D) 20 and teaching(E) them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you(F) always, to the very end of the age.”(G)

10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus,(A) so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.(B) 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake,(C) so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.(D)

13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[a](E) Since we have that same spirit of[b] faith,(F) we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead(G) will also raise us with Jesus(H) and present us with you to himself.(I) 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving(J) to overflow to the glory of God.

16 Therefore we do not lose heart.(K) Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly(L) we are being renewed(M) day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.(N) 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,(O) since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ,(A) set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.(B) Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.(C) For you died,(D) and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
