Matthew 28:19-20 VOICE
Making a disciple is not the same as “getting someone saved”. It is teaching them in the way Christ taught us, it is mentoring them, sharing life with them, and then freeing them to multiply the same way. It involves spending time with that person or group on a continuing basis, and growing together. You know, like raising children within a family. Jesus didn’t simply seek and save the lost, He left a heavenly blueprint on how to do it.
It behooves the Body to become more disciple-focused rather than salvation-focused. There are many willing and ready to learn and few who will stay and teach. Will you devote yourself to discipling someone? Raising spiritual children is just as rewarding as raising a child.
