For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has lead me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Matthew. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW
16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations (which means make disciples), baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Jesus didn't just say, “Go and make believers and baptize them.” A believer is a disciple. All who repent are to be baptized (Acts 2:38). If the people whom Peter addressed in Acts 2:14-36 repented, they obviously had to believe that Jesus is the Savior after they heard Peter’s sermon. So if Christians are supposed to make people disciples and baptize them, and only believers are to be baptized (Acts 2:38), that means a person should first be willing to begin living as Jesus’ disciple for the rest of their life right after they trust Jesus’ work on the cross to save them and believe He arose from the dead (or repent, which basically means the same thing – see chapter 1 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com). Then, they would be qualified to be baptized and thus obey Jesus' command. They must be consciously or unconsciously willing to begin living as Jesus' disciple (live a lifestyle similar to the one described in chapter 39 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com) after they accept Jesus as their Savior.
