Followers Making Followers
Once we obey the gospel, we're supposed to share God's Word with others and make new followers. But do we?
Let's be clear: We are Jesus followers committed to making more Jesus followers. Sometimes we get so caught up in the who, what, where, when, and how of making disciples that we lose sight of the main thing. And the main thing is Jesus. The Great Commission in Matthew 28 starts with the assertion that Jesus has all authority on earth and in heaven. He is the one in charge. We are making disciples of Jesus.
In the latest book from the author of Can I Tell You a Story?, Steve Ridgell shows readers how to live out the Great Commission. By answering the who, what, where, when, and how, Ridgell takes the fear out of sharing Jesus with everyone who needs him, whether you're making followers in your neighborhood or halfway around the world.
