The Great Commission 
Matthew 28:16-20 (NLT)
16)Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17)When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted! 18)Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.19)Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[a] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20)Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
The Greatest Commandment 
Matthew 22:34-40 (NLT)
34)But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees with his reply, they met together to question him again. 35)One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: 36)“Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37)Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’[a] 38)This is the first and greatest commandment. 39)A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40)The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
