What Is Making Disciples?
Making disciples of Jesus is God’s strategy in fulfilling His plan. God does everything out of unconditional love to reconcile, restore and renew all things to Himself. He is relational, intimate and personal. He therefore gives every disciple a part in His healing mission.
Jesus tells His disciples In Matthew 28:18-20 “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.”
In the context of Matthew 28:18-20 the main action is ‘making disciples’. Jesus gave His authority to His disciples so that as they journey through this life, by His Spirit, they are witnesses of Him making disciples. A disciple is made when another receives and believes in Jesus’ flesh and blood sacrifice of Himself, becoming fully immersed in His identity, truth, power and authority.
