Making Disciples of Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ came to save the world, all those who would become His disciples; those who would believe in Him and who would follow Him, go after Him and submit themselves to His discipline. Those who would accept Him as Lord and Master and
who would serve Him as Lord, His disciples, believed in Him, they obeyed His Commandments and they followed Him until the very end. And Jesus Christ commanded them to go into all the world and make disciples just as they themselves were disciples. He commanded them to preach the gospel, His words, to the whole world. Those who would believe and be baptized, will be saved but those who disbelieve, would be condemned, and those who would believe would also receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, the very same as the disciples received the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, dwelling in every disciple. Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are
children of God, they are the sons of God. Jesus did not come to call believers, He came to call sinners to become disciples,
to repent from their wicked ways and to become His disciples, His followers who would submit themselves to His discipline
and who would follow the guidance of His Holy Spirit. His disciples made other disciples, who would repent be baptized and receive the Holy Spirit and then follow the guidance of the Holy
Spirit. They themselves would become disciples.
Only disciples, true followers of Jesus Christ will have eternal life; those who go after Him, who submit themselves to Him, to the guidance and the discipline of His Spirit dwelling in them, they are the children of God, they will enter the kingdom of heaven. Those who just believe, that do not obey, who do not go after Jesus Christ and do not submit themselves to His discipline, His lordship, they will not enter into His kingdom. Those who refused to accept Him and to serve Him as Lord and Master, will have no part in His kingdom.
Jesus came to call disciples, not just believers. Have you become a disciple of Jesus Christ? Did you repent after you
heard the gospel? Were you baptized in water and did you receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit like the first disciples did? And do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit? Are you a child of God or are you just believer? We have to be disciples to be children of God. Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ.
May Jesus bless you.
