Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Peter 2:9-12; Jeremiah 29:4-14; Acts 17:26-27

God enjoys Jesus His Son by spreading His fame to all corners of the globe and calling sinners to receive, by faith, the relationship with Him that only Jesus deserves, which was made possible because Jesus suffered what we deserve for our sin on the cross.  'Disciples' receive Jesus' identity as a gift by faith, walk in that identity by the Holy Spirit's power, and endure in faith forever.

God makes disciples by sovereignly placing other disciples in various places where they openly confess the reason for their hope in Jesus (speaking the Truth...) while living for the good of the communities God has placed them in (... in love). This is why you live where you live, and work where you work, and study where you study.
