Next Steps: growing and serving others

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matt. 28:18-20

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?  

I John  3:27
