Make Disciples!

In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gives His disciples His prime directive: Make Disciples!

He expected His disciples to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples. Yet today in many churches in many countries and cultures around the world, believers are not involved in making disciples at all. They assume that it’s the pastor’s job to make disciples. However, Jesus instructions were clear. He expects every Christian to be an obedient follower – obeying all that He commanded. This includes making disciples who make disciples.

You’ll probably agree with this statement: “Too many Christians are educated beyond their level of obedience.” We know what Jesus said to do, we just don’t do it.

What would happen if every Christians got serious about obeying Jesus and started making disciples? There would be disciplemaking movements all over the world!

I believe that disciplemaking starts with non-Christians, not new Christians. When Jesus sent His disciples to make disciples He didn’t expect them to find those who were already following Him and to help them follow Him better. He sent them to make disciples of non-disciples. He sent them to be disciplemakers.

That’s why Missional Challenge is committed to advancing missional disciplemaking movements globally.
