Multiply

A disciple

Matthew 28:19  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them int the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Disciples make disciples.  It has to be so.  Jesus commanded it.  There is nowhere in Scripture where God indicates that salvation is the end of the road for a believer.  There is nowhere that we can even infer that faith is a private matter.  Jesus said to go out into all the nations and make disciples.  Those are pretty simple instructions to understand.  Go.  Make disciples.  Baptize.  Teach.  He wants us to reach the world for God’s glory.

In order to reach the entire world, we’ve got to multiply.  We’ve got to make disciples right here at home.  Training, relationships, conversations, coffee, crisis, sharing, caring…it’s all part of helping others to grow in their spiritual walk with Christ.  It’s not just the job of pastors and teachers to make disciples.  It’s a calling for all of us.  The Great Commission is for all believers.  Multiplication is necessary to the mission of the Church.

Will you go?  Will you make disciples?  Will you teach them?  Trust in God along the way and He’ll make sure you succeed.
