The Great Commission is Discipleship

Everyone who has been around church for very long knows the Great Commission.  In fact, most of us could quote it from one of the many places it appears in the scriptures.  The Great Commission is simply God’s plan for reaching the world with His message of love and grace.  But it is more than just telling them, or even seeing them trust Christ as Savior!  Please do not misunderstand, I am all for that. But the great Commission is much more!  It is baptizing them (which implies church planting). It is teaching them everything Jesus has taught us (surely if you are saved, the Lord has taught you some things from His word)  It is more than addition, it is multiplication.  It is teaching someone so they can reach and teach someone else!  Again, for most of us, this is not a new concept, but it may be an overlooked one.  Are you actively involved in teaching someone what God has taught you…so they can reach and teach someone else?  If not, please accept this invitation to invest your life in the greatest work on earth. 2 Tim. 2:2
