THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH
"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 things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19,20
Our great commission is to go and make disciples and not church members, teaching them all that Jesus has taught us. The present-day consumer-driven church is involved in inviting people to their church and hoping they get saved when in reality they ought to be making disciples of those they are inviting!
The churches are filled with lost folks who never heard the truth of the gospel, nor were they convicted by the Sunday morning message and many have sat in the pew for years, spiritually blind, deaf, and deceived in regards to the saving of their souls! We are the called of Christ, born again and filled with the Holy Spirit and commanded to make disciples! Sunday school is not discipleship! The making of a disciple takes time and effort and the laying down of one's life for the spiritual growth of another!
Jesus is our example of the making of a disciple, He spent time, day and night with them teaching, training, and leading them in the things of God. Three and a half years of living with these twelve and at the end they became apostles, all but one! On-the-job training is the way we make a disciple of Christ so, Go!
"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned." Mark 16:15,16
