To be commissioned is to be given an authoritative order, charge, or direction. Jesus commissioned the twelve and then the seventy two disciples and then all of us. Jesus told the twelve and the seventy two disciples what they might face and how they must react to what they might face. In commissioning us, Jesus told us to make disciples and remember that he will be with us always. Why not commission a whole congregation to go and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
