Matthew 28:19–20: “Go therefore and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
We know the Great Commission. The “going” is pretty clear. The question is more about the “making” portion of this scripture. How do we make disciples? What is discipleship?
Every follower of Jesus should be helping unbelievers become believers. We believe that showing people the love of Christ in practical ways is by far one of the most effective ways. Basically, you are showing them, Christ.
It doesn’t stop there, however, every Christian should be helping other believers grow and mature. That is making a disciple.
The process doesn’t have to be complex. It’s not about more classes or curriculum. Discipleship is more about the intentional sharing of life.
Are you sharing life with someone who is spiritually younger ? Is there someone further along in their spiritual walk that you is sowing into your life? We need to have both 🙂
