What’s the Purpose?
Jesus’ command to make disciples in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) was not intended solely for the early disciples, nor is disciple making the sole responsibility for a special class of Christians. Rather, all followers of Christ are called to make disciples, to fish for men (Matthew 4:19). Many don’t actively make disciples because they don’t know what it means to be a disciple. On a practical level discipleship means that we look at other people and say exactly what Jesus said to His disciples: “Follow me.” To make disciples is to intentionally show the life of Christ before others, to share the Gospel of Christ with others, to teach the Word of Christ to others, and to do all this with a view toward reaching every people group in the world with the Gospel.
