John 12:32-33 32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”33 This He said, signifying by what death He would die.


  • We are equipped to make disciples
  • There is a very strong message to unbelievers:
    • Jesus died for us, not knowing most of the people he died for
    • Who else would be able to do that?
    • Dying on the cross is very spectacular, and has all ingredients to draw people to God

What is necessary to make disciples?

  • The message of Jesus dying for us can make people free, gives them peace, make them happy. Therefore it should be easy to convince people.
  • However it is not. There are 3 conditions you must meet
    • Share it if God was good to you
    • Jesus need to be your passion
      • If Jesus is your passion people will see it in you
      • If Jesus in only your hidden passion (you are a bit ashamed of), people cannot see it.
    • You must be willing
    • You need to take effort
      • Do not try to find time for God, but make time for God
      • Do not be upset, if people have fun, and you need to be in Church. God will pay back hundredfold (Matthew 19:29)


What happens if you have passion for Christ and if you take the effort?

  • You will walk in Gods presence !
  • God will bring you peace and joy to You
  • God will bring peace and joy to other people you interact with, because you carry Gods presence
  • If people look for God, they will find it through You.

Our prayer for you

  • Let God fill you with his presence !
  • Let God give you passion for him !
  • Let people see through you the Glory of God
