Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.Matthew 28:19 NLT
15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. 16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. 17 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. 18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”Mark 16:15-18 NLT
The fruit of discipleship is more disciples. Once we learn how to follow Christ, we are to teach another how to follow Christ. The Great Commission is the charge to the Lord’s church to keep the Gospel moving through human vessels.
Discipleship is personal and corporate. We are born again and grow in faith to share the Good News with another and see them grow like us. Then we have fellowship on the journey to Christlikeness.
Let’s be ever mindful that discipleship is about others. Others. We consider the miraculous work of the Lord in our lives, and then we share the Gospel message with others. We see the Lord do in the lives of others what He has done for us.
That’s all, Beloved. That’s the Word. Selah, and let’s walk like disciples who follow the living Christ. Amen.
