Matthew 28:18-20

-----------------------------------

Fold your paper in half on on the front page write Matthew 28:18-20.

Have them read Matthew 28:18-20. (If they cannot read or are not comfortable reading, read it for them)

Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Have them read the passage.

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:

-----------------------------------

Q: Who is speaking in this passage?
A: Jesus

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

Q: What is Jesus commanding His disciples (including us) to do?
A: Go...Make Disciples

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

We want to help you begin making disciples by equipping you with tools that answer these 4 questions:

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

1. Why?

1. WHY make disciples?

2. Who?

2. WHO do I reach?

2. Who?

3. What?

3. WHAT do I say?

4. When?

4. WHEN do I have time to make disciples?

1. Why?

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

We will now equip you to begin making disciples by answering these 4 questions in under 1 hour on 1 sheet of paper. We call this the “411 Training”

1. We will answer the first question: “Why make disciples?”

1. Why? - Your Identity

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

A moment ago we saw in Matthew 28 the best reason to make disciples--Jesus commands us to.
We need to understand that making disciples isn’t just something you do, but is part of who you are. It is tied to your IDENTITY.

1. Why? - Your Identity

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

To help us better understand this, we are going to read 2 Corinthians 5:17-21.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Have them read the passage.

1. Why? - Your Identity

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

We see in this passage that Jesus reconciled us (brought us back) to Himself. If we repent & believe, He forgives all our sins and two important things happen.

1. Why? - Your Identity

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

v17

NEW

We see in v17 that Jesus made us NEW. This means that no matter what you have done or has been done to you, you are made NEW because of Jesus’ forgiveness through faith.

1. Why? - Your Identity

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus:“Go...make disciples”

-----------------------------------

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

v17

NEW Ambassador

v20

We see in v20 that Jesus gives us a new role/identity--that we are now AMBASSADORS of Him. This means we represent Him to the lost world--starting with the people in our life. It is important to understand we cannot separate these two. You cannot be made new without becoming an ambassador and you cannot be Jesus’ ambassador without being made new. WHY do we make disciples? It is our IDENTITY!

This “Oikos Map” is a prayer strategy. Since this is a work of God, we must commit to pray for these people in our life that God would save them and give us an opportunity to share the gospel and disciple them. Take a moment right now and pray for these people by name.
