For Reflection/Discussion: Disciples make disciples. The Great Commission isn't a proverb, parable, paradox, metaphor, simile, exaggeration, or contradiction intended by Jesus to stir our hearts and get us thinking. It is a clear and simple command. Are you obeying or ignoring this commandment? How do people typically rationalize their disobedience to this commandment? What are the short and long term effects and unintended consequences of our not sharing our faith with others— for us, for them, and for the future of the church? If everyone else in the church were to share their faith as you do (or don't), would the church grow, decline, or die? Who can you invite and bring to Easter Weekend worship, the Glow-in-the-Dark Egg Hunt, Financial Peace University, and/or your Growth Group?
