Series: The Body of Christ
Speaker: Nic Hill
In the sermon this past Sunday, we looked at God’s design and purpose for discipleship. Matthew 28:18-20 reveals that there is no authority in heaven which can challenge the will of Jesus, and there is no authority on earth that can call the will of Jesus into question. No power on earth or in heaven can rival His authority. Therefore, we can trust His command to be disciples and make disciples for Christ. Being disciples of Jesus means surrendering our lives and embracing the life that Christ gives. This is the only way to true life. As Bonhoeffer said, “When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.” This death happens daily as we, by the grace of God, strive to be more like Christ.
