The Israelites believed and worshipped God

 Exodus 4:27-31..27 Now the Lord said to Aaron, “Go to meet Moses in the wilderness.” So he went and met him at the mountain of God and kissed him.

This would probably be the first time Aaron had seen his younger brother in about 75 years. Moses met Aaron who would be his companion and associate for the next forty years. Aaron became the founder of the priesthood in Israel. When it comes to serving the Lord, two are better than one [A].

29 Then Moses and Aaron went and assembled all the elders of the sons of Israel; 30 and Aaron spoke all the words which the Lord had spoken to Moses. He then performed the signs in the sight of the people.

Just as God commanded they got the elders of Israel and the people together to hear a message from God. Aaron spoke the words Moses had given him and Moses performed the miracle signs from God.

31 So the people believed; and when they heard that the Lord was concerned about the sons of Israel and that He had seen their affliction, then they bowed low and worshiped.

Moses had been fearful that the Israelites would not believe his message or accept his leadership. But Israel believed when they saw the demonstration of God’s power in the miraculous signs. They rejoiced that God had heard their cry and was about to rescue them and they bowed in thankful worship for God’s grace and goodness.  Moses and Aaron discipleship at work.

 With His authority Jesus gave a 3 step process: [1] “Go making disciples” which is witnessing to people until they believe in Jesus and become His disciples. [2] Baptize these new disciples and [3]  teach them “all them all that I commanded you and I am with you always” so they will become disciple-makers. [B]

Churches tried to accomplish the last step from the pulpit during the last century. However, in the last 10 years many pastors and leaders, including Dr. Brunson and Dr. Lambert, have recognized this cannot be done at that level but must be done personally in 2 to 5 person groups by lay people.
