God Uses Ordinary People
Have you ever wondered how the church got started? In the beginning nobody was a professional. Surprised? Good thing God had a plan that didn't require professionals. God uses ordinary people. He did it to start the first movement of the church. And He does it today.
The first church sent ordinary people around the world to tell others about Jesus. It sent ordinary people to stand before governors and generals and rulers and kings. It sent ordinary people to heal the sick, feed the hungry, raise the dead, and teach all of God’s commands to everyone in the world.
The first church sent ordinary people to change the world. And they did.

Our dream is to do what Jesus said -- to help ordinary people around the world use small tools to make a big impact in God’s kingdom!
Jesus’ final instructions to His followers were simple. He said — All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all I have commanded, And I will be with you always - even to the end of the age.
Jesus’ command was simple - make disciples.
His instructions on how to do that were simple: (1) Make disciples wherever you’re going; (2) Make disciples by baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; (3) Make disciples by teaching them to obey all He commanded.
So what are the steps to make a disciple? (1) We make disciples all the time - wherever we’re going and as we go. (2) When someone decides to follow Jesus - they should be baptized. (3) As they grow - we should teach every disciple how to obey everything that Jesus commanded. Since one of the things He commanded is to make disciples, that means that every disciple who follows Jesus needs to learn how to make disciples too.
- If Jesus intended every one of His followers to obey His Great Commission, why do so few actually make disciples?
- Is the idea that God uses ordinary people different from what you had learned or assumed was the plan?
