2. make disciples
What is the main verb out of the four?
The word disciple means to be a learner when it pertains to Christianity. It means to be a follower of Christ. We are commanded to make disciples, and the way that we make disciples is first we must “go.” Going is evangelism. We must share the gospel of Jesus to the lost world.
Second, we must baptize. After people come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior we must baptize them. Baptism is the symbol of the work of Christ in the life of a believer.
We also make disciples by teaching. We teach people the ways of Christ and the commands of Christ.
III. Jesus, Our King, Promises To Be With Us All The Days
Parents, ask your children, “How does it make you feel to have me with you when you are afraid?”
Ask them, “How do you feel when I encourage you to do something that is difficult?”
Jesus sends His disciples on a commission, but He also comforts his disciples with His presence.
—Pray that you and your family would have boldness to share the Gospel with others
—Pray thanking God that He does not send us out alone without His presence.
