When disciplemaking stops, new churches stop being birthed. Jesus told His disciples to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). This required going, baptizing, and teaching to obey. When we fail to teach obedience to Christ’s commands, disciplemaking stops. When disciplemaking stops, church multiplication stops.
Disobedient Christians hinder the advancement of the kingdom. Disobedient Christians stop the church.
Obedient Christians make disciples who make disciples who make disciples. Obedient Christians reproduce obedient Christians.
What would it look like to teach others to obey everything Jesus commanded?
What would it take to start teaching your family: If the Bible says “Do it,” then you must do it. If the Bible says “Don’t do it,” then you don’t do it?
What would happen if Christians started passing everything they learned on to someone else as soon as possible?
What if obedience-based discipleship was the norm for all Christians? What if every Christian became an obedient disciplemaker? Churches would start all over the place as disciplemaking communities multiplied!
