Make Disciples not Decisions!
V.18 â€˜All Authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to me, thereforeâ€¦â€™ This is our authority!
The Risen Jesusâ€™ last command is our great commission: He authorizes us to be and make disciples of Him until the end of the age.
â€˜Make disciplesâ€™ = to make into a disciple, a learner - one who committed his life to a teacher to follow and learn.
We are to make disciples:
1. By â€˜goingâ€™ and in our â€˜goingâ€™ Verse 19a
By â€˜Baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.â€™ Verse 19b
By â€˜Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.' Verse 20
He is with us always to the end of The age!
