Obedience Challenge - Day 18


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 18

Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:43-45. In this command, Jesus says, “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."


What a profound idea! How can a Christian truly keep this command? We talked about how to do this in day 17!

A mentor is one of the biggest secrets to discipleship success.

Reach out: You know what to do. :) This is a tough one for some folks. Get in touch and be honest with a mentor! ~ Darrell
