A look at the gospels shows us that Jesus spent more time with his disciples than with the crowds. Just before He ascended we can read in Matthew 28:
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
Not only was this Jesus’ commandment to us, but also his model of ministry. The disciples that He left behind continued the process and began to disciple many others.
Then we read the apostle Paul in the book of Timothy:
and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2
We know that Paul took Timothy and Silas and Barnabas on his journeys with him. Everywhere he went he trained people how to make disciples. What discipleship means is just teaching somebody how to read the Bible, hear from God, live a strong Christian life, and encouraging them as they do. Then training them to make disciples as well. Here at Every Nation Kilisesi, we will give you the opportunity to receive discipleship and we’ll train you how to make disciples of others, just as Jesus commanded.
