You are not alone.
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
Let’s catalogue some of the help we have been given to make disciples, baptize them and teach them to obey Jesus’ commands while going about our daily life:
Now the question for today, “How do we use the help that the Lord has given us?”
We access all of the help we have been given by knowing and living the truth of Paul’s teaching in Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ and no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Just think what would happen if we quit saying, “That’s too hard,” and began to attempt to do what Jesus commanded just as the first eleven disciples did? We would see the Lord working through us to make disciples. As a result of many more disciples, an increasing number of people following Jesus, the culture would make wonderful changes for the better.
Are you willing to begin to be more diligent in living by faith in the Son of God and so obey Jesus’ commands to go, make disciples, baptize them and teach them to obey everything He commanded?
Ask the Lord to help you (1 John 5:14-15).
