LESSON Month 01-Day 11
This end times discipleship program is uniquely designed to make disciples for Christ using the Word and a simple process of multiplication while increasing your circle of friends and having fun.
Keep in mind that we are entering in to the last days and there is a desperate need for prepared kingdom workers who understand the times in which we live!
Weekly memory Scripture: Matthew 22:37-39.
Today’s Scripture: Matthew, 9:18-38. Please Underline verses that will help you make 12 end times disciples for Jesus.
Identify, in a way you can come back to for review, what scripture from today’s reading that will help me make 12 end times disciples for Jesus. You may want to highlight the scripture in your bible or you may want to write it out – however you can best come back for reminder and review.
Disciple: In verses 18-26 of today’s scripture reading, a Jewish official asked Jesus to resurrect his dead daughter.
Servant: When Jesus raised her up, “News about this spread all over that part of the country.” (verse 26)
D: While Jesus was on His way to the dead girl, a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, merely touched His clothes and was healed. (verses 20-22)
S: Then Jesus told 2 blind men, “Because of your faith, you will be healed.” (verse 29)
D: In verse 32, it says, “As Jesus and His disciples were on their way, some people brought to him a man who could not talk because a demon was in him.” Do demons still affect people?
S: Yes. We’ll cover that later.
D: At the end of our reading, Jesus “… saw the crowds and felt sorry for them.” (verse 36)
S: Jesus compared the lost people to, “A large crop in the fields, but there are only a few workers. Ask the Lord in charge of the harvest to send out workers to bring it in.” (verse 37)
D: That’s what Jesus is doing through 12 for Jesus, isn’t it?
S: It is. Let’s talk to our family, friends and neighbors about investing 12 minutes a day into this life-changing 12 for Jesus training.
D: Are there any other major commandments Jesus told His disciples?
S: Yes, one is called the New Commandment. In John 13:34, Jesus says, “I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you.”
D: There’s “love” again.
S: Yes. If you summarize all that Jesus told us to do, it would be one word: LOVE.
D: And, as Ruben Fierro says, the key to doing all that Jesus told us is love. As we grow in loving God, ourselves and others, we can be more forgiving, non-judgmental, patient, kind, generous and gentle.
S: We call our dear brother, Ruben, the Apostle of Love.
D: And the key to love is to experience the love God has for us, right?
S: Yes. Have you experienced God’s love yet?
D: Somewhat, but I’m asking for more. We read in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and you shall receive it” so I have faith more love is coming. S: Good. Consider asking some others in our family of 12 who have experienced God’s love to pray with you about this. In Matthew 18:19 Jesus tells His disciples, “I promise that when any two of you on earth agree about something you are praying for, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”
D: Will do. Anything more about love?
S: Let’s love our 12 as Jesus loved His 12.
