WEEKLY REFLECTIONS
 
Teaching Others Through Discipleship
“18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen” (Matt. 28:18-20 NKJV).

As we come to the last letter (T) of our church’s mission statement, we come to the very heart of the gospel.  Spreading the Good News of God’s love and grace all around the world is the first portion of the Great Commission.  What a wonderful opportunity believers have to partner with God in the spreading of the Good News of salvation.  Notice, Jesus told his disciples: “All authority has been given to me in heaven and earth.”  Jesus was telling his disciples that his power was comprehensive or all encompassing.  As believers, Jesus has commissioned us to go into all the world with this glorious news.

We often think in terms of sharing the Good News as the main focus of the Great Commission, but it involves much more.  Once a person comes to Christ our task as believers is just beginning.  Jesus said “make disciples of all the nations.” As Christ followers, discipleship involves a commitment to follow both the example and teachings of Christ.  Discipleship involves a dedicated effort to deepen one’s understanding of God’s truths and principles in order that one can bring honor and glory to God.  As one deepens their understanding of God’s Word there is an even greater benefit that arises; fellowship.  Fellowship with the Father.  The sweet Holy Spirit brings both understanding and a sense of being in His presence.

There are numerous opportunities to grow deeper in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.  Both one on one discipleship is available to anyone who desires to grow in their faith, as well as, group opportunities.  We have a number of individuals within the church who have led both.  If you are interested in learning more about discipleship opportunities please see one of the following Discipleship Committee members: Cathy Martin, Carolyn Hale, Rick Hagan, Mike Talley or myself.  Jesus commissioned every believer is to make disciples.  Let’s make Jesus shine.


Respectfully,

Dr. Bill Scott
