Go to Them (John 20:17)

John 20:17 (NKJV) – 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’ ”

Anticipation

17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father…

Already, But Not Yet
We are not in Heaven Yet
We can experience His presence but we are not yet face to face.

Pursuit

but go to My brethren…

Find the Lost
Find the Backslidden
Find the Injured
Win the Lost
Encourage the Brethren

Participation

…say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.

Tell them that Jesus’ Work is Complete
Tell them that Jesus’ Intercession is Constant
Tell them that they can be with Jesus Now and Forever

Do You Know Him?

Are you ready for His coming?
Is your record clean of sin?
Do you long to have Jesus as your Savior?

Takeaway Thoughts

Always anticipate the coming of the Lord
In light of the coming of the Lord, pursue men and women with the gospel
Be diligent to bring others into participation in the body of Christ
