C. Disciple making begins with prevenient grace as we each cooperate with God, go out into the world and make disciples through grace filled conversations. The task of disciple making belongs to each Christian and cannot be delegated to an institution, professionals or the gifted.
Matthew 28:19: 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 . . .
D. Disciple making continues with sanctifying grace as all cooperate with God and teach their new disciples through grace filled conversations how to live by the rules Jesus gave for their new life. A disciple is more than a God believer or a Temple worship attender.
Matthew 28:20: teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you . . .
