Obedience Challenge - Day 13


Welcome to today's Obedience Challenge! We're beginning an epic, 90 day Journey through the Gospels, learning to love and follow Jesus as his disciples.

The Scripture reading for today is: Matthew 13

Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:34-37, where Jesus says, "But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one."

How can a Christian truly keep this command? Watch the video above to learn what it means, and how you can obey... and spend the 4 minutes in prayer, letting Jesus disciple you through the Holy Spirit's leadership.

Check in with your discipleship Mentor:

Reach out: Take 60 seconds & text your mentor about what you’re learning. Ask for prayer, share next actions, or share how Jesus is transforming you.

Pastor, does your church need a clear pathway for discipling new Christians?

Pastors of smaller churches are frequently frustrated with discipleship. The number one response to the question “What is your biggest challenge with discipleship?” is this: “I have no plan.” Don’t be that guy.
