Today, we're meditating on the command of Jesus in Matthew 4:19 & Luke 9:23-25, where Jesus commands us to "follow me." Today, we're continuing to meditate on that command, and the video above will help explain the Bible reading in Matthew 3-4. 

Take the challenge - 8 minutes to obey the command of Jesus to "Follow me."

What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus?

"Discipleship is the process of becoming who Jesus would be, if he was you." - Dallas Willard

Discipleship means becoming a follower of Jesus -- which is learning about Jesus in order to imitate him. If you've just started following Jesus, or even if you've been around church a lot, you need to become a disciple of Jesus, not just a fan. 

NewStart Discipleship is a program to help new Christians become disciples of Jesus -- to be transformed and grow in knowledge of the Bible, and Christlke.

You can also download the Obedience Challenge Workbook here.

Are you new to following Jesus? Need advice on how to grow as a Christian?

If you're a new believer who wants to grow in your faith, discipleship is your next step. Click here to get a copy of NewStart Discipleship journal for yourself. This journal is designed to create "anchor habits" for you as a new follower of Jesus. It features a 50 day Bible reading plan that gives an overview of the highlights of the Bible, and a daily video to explain the reading.

What's next after becoming a Christian?

After that, you can go through the Obedience Challenge workbook, and if you want to continue to grow as a believer, then moving on to studying the holiness of God and our sanctification. 

If you're wondering "Can I trust the Bible," and whether Jesus really rose from the dead, you can check out the Defending Your Faith video course.
