Commands of Christ: 93

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey all My commands.

Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  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,  teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.   And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus tells us when and where to make disciples, as we are going.  He tells us how to make disciples, baptizing and teaching to obey all His commands.  He tells us who is to do it, the same people to whom His promise of His presence is to…all His followers.  He tells us by what authority to make disciples, His (complete) authority.  In one sense, this is the primary command of Christ, because in it, all His other commands are included.  In making disciples, we are ourselves obeying all His commands and teaching others to do the same.  If you have to prioritize one command above all others, make it this one.  Make disciples.
