Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 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.”
Mountains were a special place where God often revealed His Word. It is no exception here that Jesus reveals to His disciples the one thing He is commissioning them to do: make more disciples. The process of discipleship was the plan all along, and Jesus is now hanging the hopes of the world on the success of these men.
It is important to understand that what Jesus is saying applies to us today. All men who follow Jesus are responsible repeat discipleship. It is both beautiful and weighty that God involves us in this way. We are to make disciples for Jesus. We are to go, initiate people into discipleship (baptism), and teach them (mentoring).
Search your heart and think of how you got to where you are in your faith. Now think of others who would say you have led them and taught them to follow Christ. If either question is lacking answers, it is time to get in the game. Follow Jesus and repeat discipleship.
