Matthew 28:19 reads, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Living our lives as Christians means that we are disciples of Jesus. As Matthew 28:19 says, we are also called to make other disciples. Jesus calls us to be true “missionary disciples.” What does that mean exactly?
Simply defined, a missionary disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ who spreads the Gospel message to others! A missionary disciple has a strong relationship with Jesus, and aims to grow in relationship with Christ and with other people. This involves having a strong prayer life, being rooted in that prayer, developing relationships with others, and helping our friends come to know Christ.
