TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 6:9-15, where he says: “This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation,[a] but deliver us from the evil one.’ 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.'"
How can a Christian truly keep this command? Watch the video to learn how.
Your Church family and mentor are a huge part of discipleship!
Reach out: The commands of Scripture include a bunch that you can’t even obey by yourself. Specifically, the “one another” commands like “love one another” – which occurs a whole bunch of times in the New Testament. Your mentor and church family are part of that picture. Check in and let them know you appreciate it! ~ Darrell
Need the Obedience Challenge Discipleship Workbook?
For many Christians today, discipleship is an afterthought. Dallas Willard once said, "Undiscipleship is the dirty little secret of Christianity." That's too true! Being a Christian is more than some "eternal fire insurance,"... discipleship is a meaningful commitment to learn about Jesus for the purpose of copying him. Discipleship is a full commitment to "become who Jesus would be if we was you." (Willard)
Don't sit there any longer in casual Christianity! Instead, take seriously the call of Jesus to "obey everything I have commanded you." To start your spiritual growth journey today, get the Obedience Challenge for your church discipleship process.
