(28) ... "DISCIPLED" by the Holy Spirit

There are a number of Christians, who are in leadership positions, who feel that it is the responsibility of the Church to make disciples of CHRIST by personally discipling other Christians.
Matthew 28:19 is the verse that is most often used in their teaching of this principle. However, Matthew 28:19  "does not teach" that the Church is to make disciples by personally discipling other Christians. I would greatly encourage Christians to study this Passage of "Scripture" carefully.
The misunderstanding and misuse of Matthew 28:19 "has produced" some "undersired results" in the Body of Christ.

In order for a person to have become a disciple of Bruce Lee, they must have personally been discipled by Bruce Lee himself. No one else would have had the capability of making a disciple of Bruce Lee. ONLY Bruce Lee himself would have had the capability to do this!

Man "is not capable" of making a disciple of Jesus Christ. Man is ONLY capable of making a disciple after himself! ONLY JESUS Christ "Himself" is capable of making a disciple after"Himself." Jesus Christ does this through the work of "His" Holy Spirit, which enables "Him" to dwell inside of "each" and "every" Christian.
This helps to explain what JESUS meant when "HE" told "His" disciples that after "His" death and resurrection  that "HE" would not leave them comfortless, but that "HE" would come to them. ( i.e.- dwell with them by means of "His" Spirit dwelling inside of them )
JESUS makes disciples DIRECTLY through "His" Spirit that dwells within an individual who is a Christian ,  "not through" another Christian!
