“It is the nature of a disciple to make more disciples. They can’t help themselves–this is who they are.” – David Watson
Jesus was a disciplemaker. He started a disciplemaking movement. He not only made disciples, but He sent His disciples to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20).
In the 21st Century, the practices of being a disciple and making disciples aren’t intuitive to Christians. Yet it should be the most basic missional activity for all believers. Jesus expects His followers to help others to follow Him.
