Focus on Making Disciples (Verse 19)

Matthew 28:18–20 (ESV)

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Why should someone become a disciple of Christ? The preacher can contrast earthly authorities and the authority of Christ, who became a servant. See John 13:12–17, Philippians 2:5–11.

What will happen when someone becomes a disciple? He will acknowledge the authority of Christ.
