great works that glorify God
Part 4 – Focus on the Greatest Work
It is possible to be involved in all kinds of programs and activities and still miss the point of a life calling. The Lord Jesus sent us out with one great, final command: Go and make disciples of all nations.
Will You Be Found Faithful?
Since the last command that Jesus gave His followers was to make disciples of all nations, it is reasonable to expect that He may ask us when we get to heaven, “How many disciples did you make?” What number would you like to give Him as an answer?
Our number should not represent what we think we can accomplish. Rather, it should reflect what God can accomplish through us as we are faithful to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and as we love our neighbors as ourselves.
One way to begin the discipling process is to ask God to bring individuals to you who would like to learn forty-nine commands of Christ along with you. Resources are available that will guide you through this valuable learning experience. The result will be a greater love for God and a deeper revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ. (See John 14:21.)
“The good works we do provide the opportunity to establish relationships with people whom we can disciple by teaching them all the commands of Christ. In retrospect, I realize that this is how God directed my life and this ministry.
“The ‘great work’ was to reach teenagers in the city of Chicago, but the resulting good works were high school Bible clubs, a weekly radio program for youth, chalk drawings, summer camps, and a host of other activities. However, the lasting result has been the Basic Seminar, which teaches the commands of Christ.”
