This Is My Why
Matthew 28:18-20 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Thats where it began, this passage. My Christ fulfilled His redemption plan for me - He came dressed in humanity, lived it perfectly, died grusimly then rose victoriously! #shout
And as He was about to go back to send us the Helper and sit at the right hand of The Father to intercede for me. He left us a commission. To teach, to pass on to others who He is, wherever we go, whatever we’re doing, pointing people to Him, helping those who meet him grow to maturity, those who are mature encouraging them to stand firm and keep the fire lit. All for His Glory, for the purpose of making disciples - followers of Christ!
Discipleship is an offering of Love to my God who gave it all to redeem me. Yes I don’t get it right all the time, I drop the ball, I don’t follow up, I sometimes give not so good counsel and I at times try to make it more about me than Him. I embrace these faults in repentance. This warring reminds me that I need Jesus, so it also keeps me reminding those I disciple that they need Him - it keeps me pointing them to Him and not myself. Because I am not Him, but He is with me, He is in Me!
And in my obedience He uses these precious relationships to grow and sharpen me - to hold me accountable to areas of growth and change in my own life. #ThisIsMyWhy
