Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching
them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I [Jesus] am
with you always, even to the end of the age.
These are the famous verses known as the great commission in which
Jesus tells all of His followers (Christians) to:
Go -- don't just sit there on the couch watching TV... GO! Get
up and go. And what are you supposed to do?

true Christians are followers of Jesus. So, to make disciples what do

Whew! This is a lot of responsibility. How can we do this... and do
it well? By relying on the Lord's power rather than our own ability.
He promises to be with us always, even until the end of the age. What
does that mean? The end of the age is when the Lord returns, so that
means Jesus will be with us until He bodily returns to judge the world
and rule His earthly kingdom. You can have confidence, because your
Lord Jesus Christ will be with you always.
