“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth’” (Matthew 28:18).

In the midst of his worshiping, and even doubting, disciples (v.17), Jesus steps forward to commission them to their appointed task. Note that though some were doubting, he didn’t step back in shock, questioning whether or not they might be up to the mission that would be entrusted to them, but he came up and offered something to distract their speculative minds. The solution to a doubting faith isn’t to be found in intellectual answers but, rather, obedience to an assigned task. Engagement in the outward focused missional task of the Lord’s church provides the best answer to any introspective doubts that might arise in the journey of faith.
