How long would it take to evangelize the world if we were to actually do what Jesus said and if each year every disciple made another disciple who made another disciple?
I’m going to say it straight: If you are a believer and you are not actively participating in fulfilling the Great Commission, you are not obeying the Lord’s calling on your life.
Discipleship is more than just another church program. Jesus Christ has established discipleship as the method by which He plans to fulfil His mission to grow His church.
Let’s focus our attention on what the Lord said in His Great Commission in Matthew 28:16–20 and learn what it means to live as a true disciple.
No one knows what tomorrow will bring. But take the uncertainty of tomorrow as an opportunity to strengthen your faith—realize your future isn’t in your hands; it’s in God’s. He is with you always.
Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” But the world has almost seven billion people...where do we start? One person at a time. Our neighbour, our co-worker, our friend—the people we connect with every day are the one’s we’re called to reach.
Aron Lee Ralston’s story of being trapped under a boulder is just as unbelievable as Jesus’ Resurrection. But that doesn’t make it any less true.
Something happens when you know your father is watching and smiling. It changes your whole lifestyle. What if we lived like God our Father is watching and smiling? Would anything change?
As followers of our Lord, we believe He leads us in a certain direction in pursuit of a precise goal. His leading is unmistakably clear. Not necessarily logical or explainable, but clear.
The last thing Jesus said before He left this earth was “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). All of us who have received Christ as our Saviour have the assurance of His abiding presence. When we feel afraid we need consciously to choose to seek the Lord and look to Him to provide what we need.
