It is not an easy task. It means giving our time, talents and treasures and turning back from our worldly desires and pleasures. It sometimes means surrendering our security blanket (material possessions, relationships) and putting all our hopes and faith in Him. However, Christ promised in Acts 1:8 power for us to do this task as the Holy Spirit fills us with His very presence.
The Bible also promised eternal rewards to those who are faithfully doing the great commission. Apostle Paul, in two of his letters, wrote about the crown of rejoicing which is reserved for those who labor in leading people to the Lord and building them up in the faith. “Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved” (Phil. 4:1 cf. 1 Thess. 2:19-20).
Indeed, great are the rewards and recognition for those who win and build up souls for Christ, for it is eternal! None can compare to the treasures in store for those who are faithful in heaven. “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him’” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
It is for these reasons that we are encouraging everyone to join a Dgroup, as a member at first. As one is established in the faith, is trained in tried and tested ways of making disciples and exhibits the basic qualities of a good disciple, namely: faithful, available, committed and teachable; he or she is challenged to the great upward call of becoming a disciple or a D-Group Leader.
We pray that every Christian will see that the challenge for this earthly investment will bring forth eternal rewards from the One who is worthy of all our devotion and service.
Are you ready to become a D-Group Leader?
