Born Again? So, What? (1/2)

A great many are just satisfied with being born again, the first work of grace. Where did they get this satisfaction? Surely not from the Father, nor the Son, nor the Holy Ghost. Where did they get this strange satisfaction or doctrine? Who sowed tares in their field? [Matthew 13:25] The master's mandate is clear. Isn't it? Matthew 28:18-20 reads,

"And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”" Amen. 

Which part of this tells us to be satisfied with a person being born again? Yes, it is a thing of joy. [Luke 15:1-7] Great joy indeed that one would repent and accept Jesus Christ. Great, but that is not the end of the story. The work only just began. The master's commission is to make DISCIPLES, not sheer converts, church members, or believers.
