Every Christian has a responsibility to evangelize and try to bring people to Jesus Christ, says megachurch Pastor Greg Laurie, describing discipleship as not unlike a plane’s safety instructions.
Laurie, who leads Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, reflected on Jesus’ Words in Matthew 28 in a Facebook video posted on Tuesday.
In Matthew 28, Jesus Christ said: “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo I am with you even to the end of the age.”
Laurie explained what the passage means, saying: “It means go out, [and] to the best of your ability, lead people to Christ, get them on their feet spiritually, and go and repeat the process again, and again, and again.”
He added: “It’s sort of like, wash, rinse, repeat — evangelize, discipleship, do it again. We’re all called to do this, no one gets off the hook.”
Laurie said that in order for people to make disciples, they must first be disciples themselves.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
