How do we fulfill our commission to make disciples in Canada?

Our answer is – the same way Jesus did. Jesus was the incarnation or embodiment of God. “Now Christ is the visible expression of the invisible God.” (Col. 1:15, Phillips Paraphrase) He was “God with skin on”. Wherever Jesus showed up, God showed up. Whenever Jesus came to a town or village (a ta ethne) people got to see and hear what God was like. And they had the opportunity to become (or not become) His “disciples” (followers, students). Jesus modeled how to fulfill the Great Commission by being “God with skin on” (the incarnation) in all the places where he traveled.
