Jesus Calls Disciples NOT Converts Proselytes Believers

Jesus Christ commanded His disciples to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded them. Jesus requires His followers to be disciples. What is wrong with the world today is that Christians are converts, proselytes, they are not disciples of Jesus Christ and this is what Jesus said to the Pharisees.

I read from a Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you,, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte and when he becomes one you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.” What is wrong with a Christian world today is that it is full of converts, proselytes, believers; they believe in Jesus Christ, they believe in the Bible, they have converted to Christianity, but they have not become disciples of Jesus Christ. They are not born again and they are not children of God. They are sons of hell. A disciple is a born again a child of God, a person who is born of water and of the Spirit of God, a person that knows and follows Jesus Christ, His sheep that listen to His voice and who follow Him. They do not just believe in Him, but they know Him. They serve Him and they follow Him.

Those who just believe in Jesus Christ will not be saved, it is those who follow and obey Him that will have eternal life. Jesus called disciples not converts and proselytes, not Christians by name, because that means nothing. By their works you can know what they are, by their fruit you will know them, they are sinners they are not children of God. If a person follows Jesus Chris, if he has become a disciple of Jesus then he does not sin. He follows and obeys Jesus Christ, he is a child of God.

Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ, or do you just believe in Jesus for salvation? Because if you do not follow and obey Him, if you are not a disciple then you are none of Him, and He will say to you:”Go away I never knew you you worker of iniquity.”

May Jesus bless you.
