Matthew 28:19–20 (NLT) 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION:
1. What’s your reaction to the “yoke” metaphor Jesus used when describing how “light” & “easy” it is (way down in their soul) for a disciple to follow Him?
2. If you invest a significant amount of your life in a relatively small number of people, why have you been willing to?
a. If not, what would it take for you to be willing?
3. What other loyalties might stand in the way of you living an “everyday-whole-life-carry-your-cross-pay-the-cost” loyalty to Jesus?
4. Based on Jesus’s teaching on following Him, how might you follow up with a person you know who has recently trusted Jesus for their salvation?
a. Why do those people need more help than just in coming to know Jesus?
