THE CENTERPIECE

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations… (Matthew 28:19)

Smart phones are fun but they can also be very distracting. Once you open it, your eyes are flooded with endless apps that lure you away from your original purpose. If you’re not careful, an hour later, you could be asking “now what was I going to use my phone for?” (Angry Birds, anyone?) The very same thing can happen in our walk with Jesus. We get so involved in all the good things that we miss one of our main purposes in life. There are four verbs in The Great Commission: “Go”, “Make”, “Baptize”, and “Teach”. Only one of those verbs is primary; the others simply help the one. The word “make” is actually one word in the Greek: make-disciples. It’s the center of action for the going, baptizing, and teaching. Jesus focused all His authority and our attention on one single activity in His Great Commission: make disciples. And since this was so important to Jesus, we’re going to spend some time unpacking the centerpiece of His last command.
