When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.
Jesus’ ministry included both small group discipleship and evangelism to the masses.
As we continue the ministry of Jesus today through His Spirit, He will lead us to make disciples in smaller and intimate community. He will also lead us to share the gospel in the city and invest in the lives of people who are on the outside looking in.
A couple things…
Discipling the few is important. Taking a small group of believers deeper is vital to our ministry.
Sharing the good news with the city is important. Teaching, preaching, ministering in the city and to those who are lost is vital to our ministry.
Both discipleship and evangelism are an expectation for believers that are committed to the Mission of Jesus. We can’t choose one or the other. We need to be committed to both.
