4 Reasons Why We Should Make Disciples
The act of making disciples is one of the great ways that we make Jesus known. It serves to glorify God.
"I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father" - John 14:12
We are commanded by Jesus to go and make disciples, just as children are commanded by their parents to follow an instruction. Just like children, our typical response is "why?" or "do I have to?" or even "I don't want to!" The simplest, standard response should be- "we must obey the Father." And, the reasoning behind the answer is obvious, we must pass-it-on, we must be the cause that allows Jesus, faith in Jesus, and faith in Jesus's teachings to exist, thrive and perpetuate onward. It is the Lord's chosen and preferred method of spreading the good news of salvation through Him.
It becomes a mutually symbiotic relationship between the disciple and the religion. The disciples need the religion and the religion needs the disciples. Without one, the other would struggle to exist. Therefore, the disciple must pass-it-on or pay-it-forward, so that it can continue to grow and multiply.
Why do we need to make disciples of Jesus? If for no other reason, than simply just to honor Him. Jesus did so much for us. Jesus came to rescue us, He forgave us, He died for us and our sins, and He gave us the opportunity for eternal life! Jesus is worthy of our never ending praise and adoration.
"'You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.'" - John 15:16
Lastly, we need to go and make disciples in order to help others. Many people are hurting, lost, confused, lonely, hungry, sick, desperate, un-loved, angry, etc. and they need love and the understanding of Christ to set them free of their pain and struggles. Jesus Christ's teachings bring hope to those in need. You have witnessed it yourself in your own life! You need to share your witness with others to help them. And remember, when you "bear fruit," you receive favor and honor from the Father.
