Making Disciples

Text: Jonah 3
Summary: Jonah is now given a second chance to obey the commandment of the Lord to go to Nineveh. We are told that Jonah arose and went to Nineveh “according to the word of the Lord”. This is a key mark of a true disciple. He is one who believes and obeys the word of God. Jesus said this plainly in John 14:21-24. Jonah had a unique mission in Nineveh unlike any we might have, yet his mission there brings out a second mark of a true disciple. He is one who exports his faith and life for the welfare of other people. A true disciple then is one who lives under the commands of Christ and helps other people do the same.
