This was a painting that I did in 2011.
Making disciples. Why is it confusing when we say these words. Surely Jesus did not want us to be perplexed about the Great Commission. He is not the author of confusion. If you look at the life of Christ; He was about making disciples. This was primarily “investing in the few.” The majority of His life (30 years), Jesus stayed in Nazareth investing with His family. The other ten percent was mostly with the 12 disciples. Sure Jesus worked with big crowds, but that was not His priority or plan for us. In fact, He never intentionally did ministry for a big crowd. It just happened. If we are truly going to make disciples it should be about investing in the few!
