Jesus' Mission on Earth (Matthew 3:11)

Mission is the purpose or the most important aim of a person or an organization.

The mission of Jesus Christ on earth is summarized in Matthew 3:11-12 where John the Baptist was baptizing new converts.

John told the people, “I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming (Jesus Christ) who is coming soon who is greater than I am- so much greater that I’m not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire” Matthew 3: 11 (NLT)

Therefore Jesus’ first mission on earth is to baptize us with the Holy Spirit and Fire.

All Christians therefore must be filled with the Holy Spirit.

His second mission is to separate the good from the bad. Those who hitherto have been confused about what is right and what is wrong will now know the truth, because, Jesus’ mission is to separate good from bad.

That is why most of his teachings throughout his stay on earth was done using illustrations showing examples of what is “good” and what is “bad”

Matthew 3:12 says, “He is ready to separate the chaff from the wheat with his winnowing fork. Then he will clean up the threshing area, gathering the wheat into his barn but burning the chaff with never-ending fire”

Praise God
