I Chronicles 15:13 For because ye did it not at the first, the LORD our God made a breach upon us, for that we sought him not after the due order.
No matter what good we are trying to do for God we must be sure that we do it the way He wants it done. David had good intentions the first time but good intentions aren’t enough. God wants people to follow His instructions. He is God and we are but men.
For churches to be what they ought to be we will have to follow His plan. His plan is life on life discipleship.
2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Discipleship is the way we carry out the Great Commission. We win people to Him by the power of the Holy Spirit. We teach them to follow Him. We baptize them. We continue to teach them to serve Him obeying Him in what the Scriptures say.
