Jesus taught, encouraged, admonished, and equipped disciples in preparation for the work He commissioned them to fulfill.
Teach: People will only do what they are learn to do. When application is taught, we all learn how to fulfill the task.
Encourage: When criticism is tempered with encouragement, people change.
Admonish: Warning, advising, or even reprimanding others is needed to prevent harm from occurring in their lives.
Equip: Providing the necessary tools to fulfill the given task and responsibility is vital to the success of followers.
