Day 3 of 40 Days of Discipleship: Option or normal lifestyle?

Matthew 28:19-20
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Jesus said, “Go and make disciples”. Not as an optional suggestion but as the main way that his kingdom would grow and bless the world. It wasn’t an advanced option for the truly committed but the normal pattern for normal people to grow.
Being Jesus’ disciple involves knowing something, being something and doing something. We follow his example and learn his methods. It is personal but it is not individualistic. It is not a course but a lifestyle. It is not just information but it is applied in experience.
In the simplest form, disciples are learners who journey together to follow a teacher in a relational process, then repeat the same pattern with others. Jesus is both the teacher and subject matter. We learn from Him and about Him. God uses the Scriptures, other people and life’s circumstances to help us learn to change and become more like Him. It is knowing, being and doing with Jesus as our teacher.
