English Sermon (12/27/20) – DNA of a Disciple – #7: Traveler to Guide (Matthew 28:16-20)
The last part of our DNA series is the journey from being a traveler to a guide. Part of our spiritual journey is not just to travel alone with God, but to guide others. Living the Christian life is not just about reading the Bible, praying, serving the church or having quiet time with God. We need to focus not only on the vertical aspect of this life, but also the horizontal which is our relationship with others. Two ways we are called to guide others is by helping them to receive Christ as king and by teaching them to obey him as king. We do this by sharing the gospel and by disciple making with one another – helping each other to obey Jesus through the church body. This may seem like a tall task, but it is God himself who equips us. Our qualification to make disciples has nothing to do with us and our abilities but everything to do with Jesus through his name, his Word and his presence. It is simply our task and our mission to be there and be present – prepared daily to obey Jesus and carry out his work.
