<<generating offspring>>

God commanded all living things to produce more of their kind (Gen 1:22,28). Making disciples is reproducing the nature of Christ in others (Mt 28:19,20). We are to take seriously the Lord’s command to develop the spiritual life we have received and to replicate it in others, while also dealing with the undesirable qualities of the old life so these are not passed on to our 'offspring'. This requires us to be examples of Godliness that others can observe and emulate besides speaking into their lives.
