Being a disciple includes joining Jesus Christ in his purpose; making disciples. As a follower of Christ matures and grows in grace, he or she is called to become an ambassador for Christ. The purpose in following Christ is to become a fisher of men, that has decided to follow Christ, be changed by him and shares the truth with those around him or her. Sharing the Gospel isn’t a burden or something to be feared but a chance to share hope and God’s love with those who are in need of Him.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
