Like the disciples when Jesus gave them The Great Commission, we find ourselves caught between doubt and faith. But the great thing about Matthew 28 is that we see that it’s OK to have doubt.
It’s impossible to fully understand God, but we can continue to have faith and trust in God, because God fully understands us. We can go out into the world, just like the disciples, and do the work of God not because have absolute understanding, but because we have absolute trust in God.
