Jesus loved the masses and ministered to the few, so the few could reach the masses. Being a disciple of Jesus meant being with Jesus. As a result of being with Him, the apostles would become fully mature and equipped followers of Jesus capable of spiritual reproduction. They would reproduce in large part through preaching the gospel message to the world. We are called to repeat Jesus’ message, and imitate His method. He invested His life into the life of His disciples. Life on life is Jesus’ method. God calls us to equip others with skills and tools to walk in the Spirit and live intentional lives for the advancement of the Kingdom.
