As I’ve mentioned several times now, we discussed the Great Commission from Matthew 28:18-20 last Sunday. Here’s another important question concerning the Great Commission? Is the Great Commission (i.e., making disciples) the work of God or is it our responsibility?
The answer is, “Yes!” Only God can change someone’s heart; only God can give someone the grace and strength to grow. There are no two ways about it… “making disciples” is the work of God.
However, since Jesus clearly commands his followers to “make disciples” we must also understand that something of the Great Commission is our responsibility as well. God has chosen to work through is people.
So, what do you think? Can we separate the work of God from our responsibility? Or, is this a both/and?
