In the gospel according to Matthew, the last words of Jesus Christ to his followers were these: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (28:19). The Church calls this The Great Commission – the call to every one of us to become disciples of Christ and to lead others into discipleship.
The journey to discipleship is a lifelong one and is a journey that none of us makes alone or under our own strength. Following Jesus: Invitation to Discipleship is a special study that seeks to offer guidance for the journey through scripture, commentary, reflection, and prayer.
It was introduced as a Lenten study for 2014, but discipleship is not confined to any particular season, hence this study is appropriate for any who seek to know Christ or a deeper knowledge of him and our lives with him.
