In Matthew 28:19, Jesus says, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations." Here, he outlines the task of the Great Commission - make disciples. This is the only command in this verse. If that is true, you might wonder "Why is "go" not a command?" In this verse, "go" is not an imperative verb but a present participle and could be translated, "as you are going". Misunderstanding this could lead them and us to think that Jesus is saying we need to go, to leave our current context, to make disciples. He is saying exactly the opposite. He is saying that we are to make disciples as we are going through our lives - our sports, our ministries, our work, our families, our marriages. WHERE are we to make disciples? We are to make disciples in whatever context we are going through.
