Obedience Challenge - Day 49
NEW CHRISTIAN BIBLE READING PLAN
Welcome to the Obedience Challenge! What if you took 90 days to learn how to obey Jesus' commands in the 4 Gospels? We're a little over halfway through an epic, 90 day challenge to learn what Christ's commands mean, learning to love and follow Jesus as his disciples.
The Scripture reading for today is: Luke 5

TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 10:16, where Jesus says, “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves."
Uh-oh. This one sounds tough. What does Jesus mean by this command? 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!
If a new Christian was saved at your church, would you be ready to disciple them?
Pastors of smaller churches are frequently frustrated with discipleship. The number one response to the question “What is your biggest challenge with discipleship?” is this: “I have no plan.” Don’t be that guy.
Without a clear plan, we’ll never be able to multiply disciple-makers, as Paul commands Timothy to do in 2 Timothy 2:2: “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” Notice the 4 generations of disciples there in that one verse? Paul must have had a clear discipleship strategy – a clear plan that Timothy knew how to reproduce!
If you need one (and you do!) then try out the discipleship strategy at NewStart Discipleship tools. You can get some free discipleship tools immediately by email, to help you start planning your disciple-making strategy.
