3. Motivation. Once you have the motivation to make disciples (who make disciples) the “how-to” becomes clearer. For example, for discipleship to be reproducible it can’t be specialized (or a one-shoe-size fits all approach). The scholarship of a seminary student may have a role in the Body of Christ, but it can’t be considered as disciple making. Making disciples is more subjective and less specialized than that. Instead, all Christians who are motivated to follow Jesus are compelled internally to share Christ with others; mostly for their love for Him, but also because He commanded it.
Anyone unwilling to make disciples as Jesus commanded cannot truthfully be a disciple himself. For some reason, most of us are not involved in this most fundamental task of being a Christian. Those first disciples did what Jesus commanded and that has been the method God has used to advance His kingdom for two thousand years.
