In the final words of Jesus Christ, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, and commonly referred to as the Great Commission, He gives “marching orders” to His Church, to go make disciples.
“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.” ~ Matthew 28: 19-20.

- Define discipleship and what that process entails? — 28:28
- Why is discipleship so important in the Church today?— 46:40
This process of discipleship is vital to advancing God’s kingdom agenda on the earth because it involves helping people make the transformational journey into Christlikeness.
Going beyond just winning souls–which is wise according to the Bible, discipleship allows believers to live out Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Even now, as “The Day” gets nearer, believers in Jesus Christ should spend time being discipled by Holy Spirit and also allow Him to guide us to others whom we can help on their journey to being conformed to the image of Christ.
If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ and feel led to accept Him as your Lord and Savior, we invite you to do so, today.
