Make disciples. That is the charge Jesus gave to those He had chosen and trained to be His disciples. They took that mission seriously and presented the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ and then taught those who responded how to become disciples of Jesus by living in obedience to His teaching. The early disciples did this by spreading out into the world and teaching people how to
become followers of Jesus Christ. They did this in at the Temple in Jerusalem, Synagogues, marketplaces and homes. They wrote letters to the churches, several of which we have in the New Testament. Even imprisonment did not stop the spread of the gospel and teaching as evidenced in the life of the Apostle Paul.
That legacy of making disciples comes down to us today and depends on current disciples to carry on this command of Christ. Becoming a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ does not just happen. Someone needs to share the gospel so a person many come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord. Then, that person needs to be taught how to obey all that the Word of God teaches about how to become a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ.
