Can "make sure" mean "make a point"?

I found "make a point" in this sentence that I believe the means "make sure". I have never seen "to" following "make a point". The only expression that I know with "make a point" is "make a point of doing sth".


Make a point to wash your hands before eating.

    Making a point can occasionally be used in this way, but it's not very common. To make sure is much more commonly used.
