THe Great Comission, Be A Comissioner


Discipleship- mentoring;

In The Great Commission Matthew 28 verse 19: {Message Bible}

“Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day, right up to the end of the age”.

Our Lord and Our Friend commanded His disciples to ‘Go and make disciples’. The objective was not that we attract their own disciples, but that we win new followers  for Him.

Disciple making involves two easy steps, baptizing and teaching-mentoring. Baptism implies we have shared the Gospel and led someone to receive it. Then we must teach-mentor that person.

Point to be looked at: Jesus does not say . “Teach them everything I have commanded you”, but “teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you”.

Our Lord and Our friends, teaching shows us, how to prepare for life in His Kingdom. His Kingdom will be fully realized at His return. Until then, all His subjects will be those who faithfully follow Him. The way to enter God’s Kingdom is by faith. Believing in Christ Jesus  alone to save us from sin. The He will change you from inside out to be a citizen of His Kingdom. We need to ask ourselves have we fully given ourselves over to Him. If so are we faithfully sharing our Lord and Our King with family, co-workers and friends and other people we meet.

We might not travel that far across the world in our journey through life, but we shaw can make a difference in our little part of the world.

Discipleship/mentoring is not a matter of book learning, but mentoring people to a lifestyle transformation, where they will want to and enjoy learning more about Our Lord and Our Friend for themselves.

Then they will become people who can also discipleship/mentor.

God Bless.
