TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 7:15-16, where he says, "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"
What does this mean, and how can we obey this command of Christ? Watch the video above to learn how.
Make sure to check in with your mentor if you wish to grow spiritually as quickly as possible!
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. It's a crucial spiritual growth practice, since discipleship is a team effort!
Helping new Christians grow in their desire for holiness of heart and life...
Pursuing Holiness is also available 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.
