Evangelizing, proselytizing, witnessing, testifying, sharing our faith, preaching, teaching, exhorting, admonishing, disciplining . . .
However we contextualize the act of “taking Jesus into the world” it is important to understand that we as Christians ARE asking others to change thier way of thinking; both before they accept Christ and after, so that continued maturing will take place.
It is the power of God that makes a new creation, but it is the changed thinking of the individual that recognizes a need for the confession and repentance that invites Christ into their life so that regeneration may take place; because God forces Himself on no one.
“Be transformed by the renewing of your minds . . .” is changed thinking. To even know God we have all had to be transformed by Him and taught by The Holy Spirit how to think.

Denotation IS conotation, and so, go into all the world proselytizing disciples and proselytizing them to obey Christ’s commands.
