Family Devotion Day 40: The Great Commandment and The Great Commission


Matthew 28:19-20 “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.”


God loves Singapore and has a plan for our country and the whole world to know Him. Everyone has a part to play, not just your pastors, parents or teachers. He wants you to join Him too! 

Keep in your heart the three things God has called all of us Christians in Singapore to do. And yes! That includes you. 

Turn Singapore towards God 

People need Jesus. He is the only hope that never fails. Tell them about Jesus. Spread God’s love and show His power to people in your life – your schoolmates, your neighbours, family and friends – so that they can see Jesus through you. Use words that encourage and do things that are helpful and kind. 

Win the youths 

Pray for your friends and schoolmates, invite them to your church, share the Gospel with them. You are in exactly the right place at the right time to be part of the Great Commission!

Bless the nations 

Pray for the countries around Singapore and the foreigners in Singapore. Go on mission trips with your parents or your church. Go outside Singapore to bless people who don’t know God yet.

Today is National Day, the day we celebrate 58 years of independence. Today is the perfect day to thank God for His blessings on Singapore and to ask Him for greater things for our nation.
