Make disciples

RE Verse reading–Matthew 28:16-20 (day three)  “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” (vs 19)  A disciple is a learner.  The greek word is mathetes (english word “math”).  It referred to one who was learning from a teacher by means of association and instruction.  Think apprentice without Donald Trump.  The disciples had clear memories of where Jesus had taken them and what He had told them to teach them new life.  Now, they are empowered to offer this same relationship to others!  Be clear!  Jesus will still be the teacher. (cf Matthew 23:8)  By His resurection,  those of us who have never seen Him are still the recepients of His personal involvement and instruction.  Think of it!  The Lord, through His Spirit, is pressing on us specific lessons at this very moment!  He is training us and giving us the privilege to invite others into “the school of the Savior”.  By introducing them to Christ, we make them disciples.

  1. The Great commission command is …As you are going. Day by day …make diciples.
    The emphasis is not to some place, like preparing for a certain mission field. Our mission field is the here and now….as you live and encounter people.
