Jesus was never someone to mince words. There isn’t a single throwaway quote or pointless word attributed to Jesus in the entire Bible. When Jesus speaks, you can rest assured that what He says is meaningful, so you’d better be listening.
That goes double for His last recorded words on the earth: “Go and make disciples….” Pretty clear statement from our Lord and Savior. “Go! Leave where you are and ﬁnd where ‘they’ are, the lost and the hopeless. Make disciples! Show them My love, tell them of My sacriﬁce
and My victory. Teach them to follow Me.”
We were commanded to do this, and our follow-through on this most basic command has not been as consistent as it might have been.
There are two basic issues with this command that make it diﬃcult: the going and the making.
