God’s Directive, Discipleship
Before leaving this world for heaven, Jesus gave two directives for His followers. One was to empower them and the next was to encourage them. The two commands are found in Matthew 28:19-20.
Jesus followers are empowered to make disciples and encouraged as they behold the promise of Jesus to be with them always.
Making disciples is not a quick process but knowing that God is with you both in and through the process brings hope in what God is able to do.
