On the Biblios website, the Interlinear bible states verse 19 as:
If you have ever felt defeated because you haven't "made any disciples lately" or felt an un-Spirit lead pressure to make disciples then I want to encourage you. Let us not fall into the American church teaching that can imply that making a disciple consists of only baptizing someone, then done. (and definitely not that it's just helping someone pray Jesus into their heart...which is an incorrect teaching based on a misapplication of scriptures in Eph.) We are called to disciple the nations...to help others (a diversity of others) and to teach them to progressively learn the word of God, encourage them to cling to him, to follow him and to mature in Jesus. There is no "point" at which any of us can boast, "I've made a disciple." It's by God's mercy that disciples of Jesus are made and the opportunity we have as followers of Jesus to disciple the nations is a lifelong journey with people!
WE don't open others hearts...God's word does. WE don't make them obey...God's Spirit leads them. So I hope these scriptures will inspire you further...
- be active in sharing your faith (Philemon 6)
- "plant and water" (1 Cor. 3: 1-9)
- baptize those who decide to follow God so that their sins can be forgiven, teach them, and love, love, love them :] yay! (Matthew 28:16-20 & Matthew 22:37-39)
I hope you find this encouraging and that you get a chance to check out the Biblios website - it's a wealth of resources!
