We have come full circle. Jesus called his disciples with the words: “Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Then he did exactly that and taught them, influenced, them shaped and sometimes scolded them. He made them his disciples in every possible way and eventually turned them into fishers of men with the words: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations … teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Read Matthew 28:16-20
- If you followed Jesus up to this point, you just now received clear instructions what to do next. What are his instructions? How are you going to do it?
- If you are getting nervous and afraid of carrying out the instructions, there is a promise from Jesus himself that will help on the way. What is that promise?
- This was just the beginning. You are going to learn even more about how to think like Jesus and how to be like him. Much of what you learn will be as you go along obeying what he said. You will make disciples just as he did, exactly as he disciples you. How? Write it down. What are the next step and if you can see further, the next two or three steps that you going to take in faith?
