Discipleship Mini-series - Part 3 - Mission
I strongly recommend listening to the audio, bellow is a brief summary of what is covered in the audio. Also the text bellow is taken from my post on Being a Disciple. I have broken that post down into 6 mini-posts where the focus is on the audio content.
We are to hear/read the words of Jesus, more than that we are called to do/live the words of Jesus, to follow His example.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
- Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV (bold mine)
Jesus now calls us to go and make disciples, baptizing, teaching people to live in accordance with all that Jesus commanded. Jesus promises to be with us as we go and do what He has called us to do. As Jesus was our example, we now must be the example for others. As Jesus lived according to the word of God, as Jesus was the incarnate Word of God, we are to live our lives in such a way that we reveal Jesus, that we reveal the word of God to those around us. Jesus promises to be with us while we do this!
