TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
We're meditating on how we can obey the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:34-37, where he tells us, "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 to "not swear?" You can watch the video yesterday to learn how, and spend todays' 4 minutes of prayer above meditating on how you can obey!
For maximum discipleship results, check in with your mentor!
Can you do it a little different today? Review each of the commands, and see where you’re still holding firm in your obedience to Jesus. Take a
moment and celebrate with your mentor and be glad... you’re GROWING! I’m proud of you! ~ Darrell

Pastor, does your church need a clear strategy for new believer discipleship?
You’ll never multiply disciple-makers without a clear and simple plan for discipling new believers! If you need one, you can use the discipleship strategy created by NewStart Discipleship to provide a clear pathway for discipling. This makes is possible to not only disciple effectively, but to multiply disciple-makers.
If you're a pastor who cares about discipling new Christians, and get a copy of the NewStart Discipleship tools for small church pastors, you can get a license to print as many copies as you need. NewStart also includes a license to print the workbook for Obedience Challenge: 90 Days to Obey Jesus, and many other discipleship tools.
