The Great Commission
Throughout the New Testament, we are given lots of commands from Jesus. One of them is "Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13: 34, NIV). Another command is for us to go and make disciples as referenced above in the image.
What does this mean to "go and make disciples"? It means that we, as Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, are to go out into the world and spread His good news! We are not to just merely go to our family and friends; our immediate circle. No, we are to go up to strangers when we see them in need and share the gospel.
Jesus had 12 disciples - in his inner circle - however, He virtually has millions of disciples in today's world.
Let me put it to you another way:
A disciple is not just a follower of Jesus Christ. A disciple is also a student of Jesus Christ and his teachings.
Does that make more sense? I sure hope so...
I may delve into this at a later date, after further study and reflection. Other topics I am hoping to share with you in the near future include keeping the Sabbath and what the actual Sabbath day is; end times / prophecy; and some of the Proverbs.
