2nd in a 5-part series on the pillars of life
Disciple-making means showing people, over time, how to live life to the fullest. In doing so, we bring them into intimacy with the Father. The disciples said, “Show us the Father.” Jesus replied, “You’ve seen me; you’ve seen the Father.” He brought them into intimacy with the Father by modeling what that looked like. Similarly, we disciple others by being God’s ambassadors. If you were to meet the Japanese ambassador, he might make a similar claim, “If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen Japan. I am the physical representation of Japan in America.”
We don’t naturally know how to walk as citizens of the Father’s Kingdom anymore than the 12 disciples did. It took Jesus about three years of intensive modeling of life and ministry before they began to see God’s big picture and walk in authority and faith.
