Make Disciples Of All Nations

Matthew 28:16-20

How do we make disciples of all nations?


First of all, we must be available.

The eleven disciples went into Galilee and to a mountain that the Lord Jesus Christ had appointed them (Matthew 28:16).

They were available.

They were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there.


The second thing is worship.

When the eleven disciples saw the Lord Jesus Christ, they worshiped Him (Matthew 28:17).

They have a worshiping heart.

Their hearts are wholly set on the Lord Jesus Christ.


Thirdly, it is submission.

When the Lord Jesus Christ came near, He made a claim to a total complete sovereign authority.

He has all authority.

The Lord Jesus Christ is in charge.

He is sovereign.

And to Him we must submit.


Fourthly, we are to be obedient.

We are to go and make disciples of all the nations, baptize them and teach them to observe all the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19).


And fifthly, we are to do all things with the power of God.

We need the Lord God to be with us.

It is the power and the purpose of God that is behind everything.

The Lord Jesus Christ is with us.

He is in us.

And He is empowering us.

He will be with us all the days until the consummation of the age.

The task of reaching the world is a task that is made possible by the power of Christ who is present in us.
