    The Great Commission is more than just getting people saved.

    Matthew 28:18And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19Go 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, 20teaching 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.


    Jesus said, “make disciples” the term used for getting people saved is more than just “HELL INSURANCE” it is becoming a student and a follower

    The work of regeneration is that of the Holy Spirit alone. HE is the one who "wins souls". But we must be found faithful to

    Make Disciples (learner, follower)
    Baptize those Disciples
    Teach those Disciples ALL things

    All part of the plan.

    The "1-2-3-pray-after-me" easy believism that pervades some ifb circles is a sham gospel and a reproach on the name of Christ.

    Too many distant learning students are made. But a disciple follows the master.

    I learned a great lesson when I went to a furniture making school led by a world class funrniture maker that has some of his things in the Smithsonian. What I noticed was that early we had our own ways of doing things. But soon we adopted the methodology and thinking of the master who taught us. To this day it is easy to see the work of his students and not even know they studied under him. There are those signs that tell who the discipe was learning from.

    A student learns about the master, but the disciple follows the master.
