In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus tells every Christian exactly what He wants us to do, “Make disciples of all the nations.”
It would seem that any theory of church growth, any mobilization of God’s people, any desire for revival would begin with making disciples.
Is your heart longing for revival?
Do you want to change your world, your nation, your community, your neighborhood, your church, your family?
What if we just did what Jesus said? What if we just started making disciples–maturing followers of the Lord Jesus?
You make disciples—the church must take responsibility for its role in revival to make disciples of all nations.
- What if you told some people you told about Jesus that you would love to meet with them for breakfast once a week, or they came over for dinner, or two or three of them agreed to come over to your house or meet in a conference or break room at work or school weekly?
- What if you asked them to tell their own story about Jesus so that they could get to know one another better?
- What if you asked them how you could pray for them, and if they knew anyone who needed Jesus?
- What if they said yes, and you showed them how to tell their friends about Jesus?
- What if their friends believed in Jesus and suddenly you were hosting a “minichurch” in your home or at your workplace or school?
