Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matt. 28:18-20, NIV)
The heart of our calling isn’t one sided. We need to PROCLAIM. People need to hear to make a decision.
We also need to teach obedience. The heart of discipleship is doing what Jesus did. We have to nurture people along to a place of following what Jesus said and did. We don’t do one or the other. We must do both. We do this as we go… here or “there.”
