The greatest commission as we have grown to call it, is all about making disciples. Soul winning is the beginning while making disciples is the goal. What God is doing in your life can be duplicated in others. What you have received from the Lord can be passed on to others who will in turn do the same. Every human being has an obligation to do in others whatever good has been done in them. Taking what you have received and giving it to another person is divine. This is making disciples. The ultimate fruit for you to bear is making Disciples of Christ. Bear fruit in others by making them disciples.
It doesn’t have to be complicated neither do you need a degree in theology. You don’t even have to make it a fulltime job. Simply deliberately make time to influence others to grow in God and in faith. You have to be patient and consistent. Don’t worry about instant results, but rather take your time. Target one or two people at a time, then give them your best and mould them into the image of God. The fruit that bears fruit is when you make disciples who will in turn make other disciples. That is the simple model Christ used and it is still working today. Play your role and let it keep working through you. Bear fruit by making disciples.
SCRIPTURE READING: Matthew 28:18-20
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the age.” Amen.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I’m grateful for I bear fruit in others by making them disciples. May I walk in the knowledge and understanding that the ultimate fruit for me to bear is making disciples in you. Hallelujah! Amen
