TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened."
What does this mean, and how can we obey this command of Christ? Watch the video from yesterday to learn how you can obey Jesus' command to ask, seek and knock!
Check in with your mentor to press forward into your discipleship!
Reach out: Have you ever thought how Jesus, the Son of God, who could do anything he wanted... decided to be in a community with others? Jesus withdrew to be alone with his Father, but always came back to his community of disciples. He showed us the way. So check back in today! ~ Darrell
Helping new Christians grow in their desire for holiness of heart and life...
Pursuing Holiness is another tool available from NewStart Discipleship as a church-wide holiness church campaign, to enable small or large churches and their pastors to pursue holiness together as a means of discipleship and revival. This valuable Bible study on holiness comes with a 130 page workbook, daily sample prayers for holiness, meditation questions about holiness and sanctification, journaling space, and online tools including 40 daily teaching videos about holiness, and guided prayer experiences to help your congregation in seeking holiness. It is part of the family of NewStart Discipleship tools.
Holiness is not a Pentecostal concern, or one for the Holiness Movement, the Methodist Church or Wesleyan/Arminian followers of John Wesley. It isn’t just for holiness churches! It is for all serious Christians, all students of God's Word, regardless of denomination or background. Holiness isn’t just a theological theory, it’s a pursuit of God’s heart, and a replication of his character in the human spirit.
