LESSON Month 01-Day 05
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 the disciples are called end times disciples because we are entering in to the last days and there is a desperate need for prepared kingdom disciples who understand the times in which we live!
Weekly memory Scripture: Matthew 28:18-20.
Today’s Scripture: Matthew 5:1-26. 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: Today’s scripture reading is the beginning of the famous Sermon on the Mount, isn’t it?
Servant: Yes, it is one of the most important teachings of Jesus. It’s filled with wisdom that can help us reach and teach our 12.
D: “God blesses those people who depend only on Him. They belong to the Kingdom of Heaven.” (verse 3)
S: Depend on God and be blessed.
D: What’s your definition of “God blesses”?
S: God is good to them.
D: “God blesses those people who are humble. The earth will belong to them.” (verse 5)
S: God can work through humble people.
D: “God blesses those people who want to obey Him more than eat or drink.” (verse 6)
S: Yes, “They will be given what they want.”
D: And those people who have pure hearts will see God. (verse 7)
S: And those who are peace makers will be called God’s children. (verse 9)
D: And those of us who are mistreated for doing the right thing should be happy because we belong to the Kingdom of Heaven. (verses 10-12)
S: Yes, Jesus gave us some great insights with today’s scripture reading that will be helpful to us and our 12, didn’t He?
D: He did. What if I have questions when reading the Bible?
S: Most of the Bible is easy to understand. As you begin reading each day, ask God to give you understanding. If you have questions, there are many ways to get answers. If you have a “study” Bible, it will answer most of your questions. Another way is to search the Web under Bible Commentaries.
D: May I ask questions at our weekly 12 for Jesus gathering?
S: Of course, but those sessions are primarily for sharing what you learned that week that will help you make 12 disciples for Jesus.
D: I know this is basic, but how do I find a specific part of the Bible, such as Matthew 28:18-20.
S: That’s easy. Here’s what it means: Matthew (book), 28 (chapter): 18-20 (verses). Look in the Table of Contents under New Testament for the page where the book of Matthew begins. Look in Matthew for the large numbers. They are the chapters. Then look on the pages for the smaller numbers. They are the verses. Now practice by looking up Matthew (book) 28 (chapter): 18-20 (verses).
D: Got it. Is it OK to write in my Bible?
S: Yes, please do. Underline verses that will help you make 12 disciples for Jesus who do likewise. Have you told a friend about 12 for Jesus yet?
