The Great Commission

My notes on the message preached at the
Bethel Evangelical Church in Otley
on Sunday morning the 30th of April :

On Making Disciples :

1) we need to spend a lot of time with the LORD ...
2) ... becoming like the LORD
3) resources are important BUT it's disciples that make disciples - it's a relationship.
4) "baptising" 1st then "the Lord's Supper"
5) "teaching" : is about putting off the 'old man' and putting on the 'new man' ( Romans 6:8-14 )
6) it is mandated by Jesus who has "all authority" to command and arrange resources.
7) "I am with you always" : "all forsook me but the LORD stood by me" ( 2 Timothy 4:16-17 )

May the LORD bless his Word to us.
