18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 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, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The leader of our bible study asked us this question, "When is the last time you made a disciple?" That's a tough question right?! Really think about it... Can you remember the last time you actually made someone a disciple?? Let me ask you another question... Can you remember the last time you shared Christ with someone who doesn't know him? I challenge you to really spend some time thinking about those questions. We don't have the option of picking and choosing which commands from the Bible we want to follow. In Matthew 28, Jesus doesn't say, "If you want to, if you can find the time, try to make disciples." NO! He says GO and because we serve a loving God, He promises us that He will be with us ALWAYS!
Sam and I talked tonight about how we have not had the opportunity to share Christ with most of you. Sure, we have shared with you what the Lord has been doing here in Australia but we haven't ever really talked with most of you about where you are with the Lord. If you can say, right now, that when you die, you know without a doubt in the world, that you will go to heaven, then praise God! But if you are hesitant, or are not sure, then I want to challenge you to ask yourself, why not. What's holding you back from giving your life over to the Lord? We would love to talk to you about this more. If you have any questions or just want to share what the Lord has done in your life, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
