Make disciples of people of all nations. This is taken from Matthew 28:19.
By doing our part to fulfill that commission, we try to help our neighbors to leave the broad and spacious road that leads to destruction and get on the cramp road comedian off into life. Matthew 7:13, 14 tells us: “”Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is that gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it.” Matthew 22:39 tells us: “The second, I like it, is this: ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.'”
Through effective return visits and home Bible studies, we have the satisfaction of helping people to conform to God’s righteous standards. This may result in quite a change in a Bible student’s lifestyle. 1 Corinthians 6:9 – 11 tells us: “Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Those who are sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who submit to homosexual acts, men who practice homosexuality, thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers, and extortioners has will not inherit God’s kingdom. And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean; you have been sanctified; you have been declared righteous in the name of the word Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God.”
It is heartwarming, indeed, to see how God helps those “rightly deposed for everlasting life” to make needed changes and come into a close relationship with him. Acts 13:48 tells us: “When those of the other nations heard this, they began to rejoice and to glorify the word of Jehovah, and all those who were rightly deposed for everlasting life became believers.”
In the case of many, despair is thus replaced by joy, and undue anxiety buy confidence in our heavenly Father. How good it is to observe the spiritual progress made by new ones! Do you not agree that it is a blessing to demonstrate love for neighbor in this special way as Kingdom proclaimers?
