Love God • Love Others • Make DisciplesMay 13, 2014
What does it mean to make disciples? Jesus’ great commission to his disciples is that we are to share this good news (Gospel) of Christ throughout the world, making disciples of people from all nations (John 17:18-21). Through Christ, God is reconciling people all over the world back into relationship with himself, and God has given to us this ministry of reconciliation as his ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:16-21), empowered by the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8). A disciple is a fully committed follower of Jesus who lives their life, does their work, and loves their neighbor all for the glory of God (Philippians 1:10-11, 1 Corinthians 10:31), and who, by sharing their faith and Christ’s teachings with gentleness and respect, produces other disciples (1 Peter 3:15-16).
