The Call To Live As A Disciple of Jesus

Tags: Church Planting Disciplemakers Discipleship Good News Least-reached

The Call is to live as a passionate disciple of Jesus. Jesus wants to use each one of His followers to go and make disciples of every nation.

Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”Matthew 28:18-20

It is no coincidence that you are reading this and that God called you to live a life of significance.

God made you with a purpose. If you let him He will transform you and use you to share His love with others.

Your Own Call To Live As A Disciple

You are here to make disciples who will go and make disciples until everyone has heard the Good News.

The transforming love of Jesus is good news for our broken world.

This Good News is for everyone, and yet over two billion people have still never heard it. Others have never understood, still held captive by various forms of evil in a broken world. What is God doing about it?  How will He turn an upside-down-world right-side-up? Only the transforming love of Jesus can heal our broken world and set the captives free.

God is longing for a restored relationship with every person. 

 He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will. – Ephesians 1:4-5

Created In His Image

He has created each one in His image and likeness. And has sent His own son, Jesus, to redeem and restore all creation. The death and resurrection of Jesus marks the tipping point in human history. Evil has been defeated, love will win, and a new world is on its way.  It is imperative that people from every tribe and every nation have an opportunity to hear this Good News.

But all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ [making us acceptable to Him] and gave us the ministry of reconciliation [so that by our example we might bring others to Him], that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people’s sins against them [but canceling them]. 
– 2 Corinthians 5:18-19

But how will this happen? 

Go And Make Disciples

It is only possible through His disciples who take their responsibility seriously to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20).

Fulfilling the Great Commission, means the healing of our broken world will take place from the inside out. As the love of Jesus brings reconciliation to individuals, then families, communities, and the world.

Jesus spent three years with a core group of a dozen people. He taught them to love, live and serve like Him. God’s strategy is to redeem the broken world through His disciple. These disciples make more disciples and forming new fellowships of believers until the whole world knows.

The Call To Live As A Disciple And Global Disciples Mission

That is the call on the life of every Christian, and this is the training we provide at Global Disciples. The commitment of every believer is to go and make disciples and plant churches. This should be among every ethnic group so that all nations have the opportunity to hear the Gospel.

An incredible privilege to be involved in ensuring that everyone has the possibility to experience grace, freedom, and transformation. We are all called to do our part so that Christ’s redeeming love will touch the lives of our neighbors and bring healing in this world.

This is not the work of one church, denomination, or nation. 

It is an assignment for every disciple from every nation to work together in unity so the entire world will know Jesus. At Global Disciples, we call every follower of Christ from every nation and denomination to live as global disciples of Jesus by making the following commitment:

Being united by the Spirit of the Lord, I want to live as a global disciple of Jesus.  My allegiance is to Jesus Christ; He is the Living Word of God, as revealed by the Holy Spirit and through the Bible. I want to fellowship with His disciples all over the world and work to tell every nation about Him.

We are not disciples of Global Disciples, we are disciples of Christ. And as such, we should be able to answer “yes” to two simple questions.

One, are we part of active fellowships of believers who are discipling us to love like Jesus? And two, are we making disciples by investing in the lives of others? This is our commission as followers of Jesus.

The Kingdom of God is growing as never before, and the love of Jesus is changing everything.

Global Disciples Mission

Global Disciples’ simple multiplication strategy of teaching disciples how to make disciples and plant reproducible fellowships of believers is being used around the world and is changing everything.

Churches are being planted all over Africa, Asia, and Latin America; they are active and flourishing even in closed Muslim countries; leaders are teaching church planters how to start small businesses so as to have the resources they need to plant new churches and minister in their communities. In our generation, we hope to see the church planting movement taking place in every country around the world.

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
