Making disciples is the natural outcome of knowing Jesus. In fact, it’s the heart of His Great Commission.
“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 that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
When disciples join other disciples to worship God, pray together, study the Bible, witness and follow Jesus, they are being the church and are called to multiply, i.e., make more disciples.
Moreover, it is important to help new disciples quickly reach out to their families, relatives, friends, co-workers and others in their circle of contacts to the end that they soon become “disciple-making disciples.”
This involves helping them grow in the word and grace, pray, share their testimony, present the gospel and mentor others in their new faith.
The desired end? New discipleship groups and new churches!
This is the model in the New Testament and is what Arise! Ukraine is seeking to emulate – to see Ukraine covered with alive, kingdom teaching churches in this generation!
