Couched in the pages of Matthew’s Gospel, we see the clarion call through Christ’s convicting command: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations” (Matthew 28:19). One might wonder how can we fulfill that Great Commission in the current climate of today’s culture? How can we become disciples and make disciples?
Jesus Teaches Us about Following Him and Making Disciples
Paul wrote to the church at Corinth and instructed them to “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ” (I Corinthians 11:1). This verse paints the perfect picture of discipleship in the fact that one never graduates from being a disciple—a follower of Jesus Christ; it is out of one’s own discipleship efforts that others are then invited on the journey of becoming disciples as well.
Discipleship is more than a six-to-twelve-week class for new converts. It is the lifelong process of daily becoming a stronger follower of Jesus.
One never graduates from being a disciple—a follower of Jesus Christ.
The Barna Group estimates that the typical believer who allocates time and energy to personal spiritual growth will spend roughly four hours a week on endeavors that aid their spiritual formation—be it Sunday school, Bible study, small groups, personal devotion, and so on.
