Disciple Making

Matthew 28:27-29 image

Surely, this is a Great Commission! The principal verb of command in the original language isn’t “go” but “make disciples.” Accomplishing the Great Commission commands us to be making disciples, not just deciders. It means baptizing believers and to teach them to obey all Christ commanded. Obedience is the purpose of Christ’s Great Commission. Only doers of His word are true disciples (Matt. 7:21; John 8:31).

There’s a different way that this is a Great Commission. Originally, Jesus told His disciples to go just to “the lost sheep of Israel” (Matt. 10:6). Except now He charges them to go to all the nations (ethnic groups). With faithful disciples in barely half of the twenty-four thousand “nations,” an enormous amount continues to be done in achieving this Great Commission.

Do you agree this sounds like a “mission impossible”? It would be if it weren’t for Christ’s promise to be with those who go and make disciples in all nations. With the command is the promise. His attendance makes it achievable.

Who’s ready to accept the “mission impossible” challenge? If not, why? What’s holding you back? What’s stopping you?

Why Obey?

Being responsible? It’s hard, in today’s society. It was in Biblical days, too. That’s the way people put it who choose not to be responsible and blame everyone and everything else about their life.

We all make choices. Even not choosing is a choice. Those choices all have ramifications on our lives.

The Word talks about it clearly.

This book (The Word; The Holy Bible), is God breathed and inerrant, teaches an important lesson: we bring hardship to ourselves and others when we disobey God.

May we see the moral integrity of God that Moses proclaimed and respond by being responsible.
