Discipling others is a natural manifestation of being a disciple. Jesus made it clear from beginning – Matthew 4:19 – If you follow Jesus, there is one sure end, you will fish for others, and all the way to His last charge – Matt 28:18-20 – Now that all authority in heaven and the earth is in Jesus’ hands, the responsibility of His disciples is to go out and disciple nations.
If we are not discipling others, it’s because we are not really disciples. If we are not disciples, then we can’t truly be Christians – Acts 11:26 – It’s the disciples that were called Christians.
Making disciples is the supernatural overflow of being a disciple. Proclaiming His praise is a direct consequence of experiencing is salvation and sharing in the life of Christ. Witnessing Jesus is a proof of having the life of Jesus inside of you. If indeed we died with Christ, if indeed He is risen and living in us, then our lives will be poised to manifest His life, the DNA of which is discipleship. Many in “Church” are not doing this. Why?
