A Decision or a Disciple?
The Risen Jesus’ last command is our commission: He commands us to be and make disciples of Him until the end of the age.
‘Make Disciples’ = to make into a disciple, a learner - a disciple was one who committed his life to a teacher to follow and learn. (not decisions!)
Are you a disciple? Are you being a disciple?
It begins with committing your life to Christ! But then it is a lifetime of following, learning, growing and obeying!
Acts 17:24-31 God commands that we repent & put our faith in Jesus Christ!
1. We are to make disciples: in our ‘going’… verse 19a
> a lifestyle of sharing the good news of Jesus!
2. By ‘Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’
*We have to first be this! verse 20
-Be baptized v.19; Acts 2:28-39 We are having a baptism today!
-Repent – from those things we know are wrong! Matt 4:17
>live a Christ-honoring life thru the power of the Spirit!
-Love – Love God and love one another! Matt 22:27-40
How are you involved in making disciples? Can be simple – a phone call, word of encouragement, to meeting with someone to help them in their journey!
