MIS: We Must Make Disciples of All Nations because Jesus is worthy of All worship

What hinders you in your witness? (fear, business, excuses, etc)
His worship is the goal of our mission

P1: We make disciples because Jesus’ authority ensures the success of our mission. (vs 16-18)

Jesus deserves all worship and his authority demands our obedience
The primary motivation for making disciples is not to keep people out of hell but to make Christ’s worth known

Christ’s authority throughout the book of Matthew:

over nature (8:26)
over disease and demons (4:23-24 and 8:28-34)
our lives (16:24-25)
over sin and death (9:1-7 and 28:1-10)

P2: We make disciples as we follow Christ’s example (vs 19-20)

Christ’s example is the route we take (road trip analogy)

We make disciples by going...

The going in this passage is assumed. Though the emphasis is clearly on making disciples, this cannot happen apart from going.

We make disciples by baptizing...

Baptism is more that merely an initiatory rite…or secret hand shake. It identifies us with Christ in His life death, and resurrection, publically. It testifies to our repentance and the Gospel.

We make disciples by teaching...

Being a disciple meant more than being a convert or a church member. Apprentice might be an equivalent term. A disciple attached himself to a teacher, identified with him, learned from him, and lived with him. He learned, not simply by listening, but also by doing. Our Lord called twelve disciples and taught them so that they might be able to teach others ().

P3: We make disciples knowing Jesus is always with us. (vs 20)

The book of Matthew opens with the arrival of Immanuel and closes with the promise that He will always be with us
The words: πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, every day, mark not only every year which will elapse till the world’s end, as years of redemption, but also every day, even the darkest, as days of redemption.

Application: 1. We must treasure Christ 2. We must disciple our families 3. We must go to the lost.
