LESSON Month 01-Day 07
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 28:18-20.
Today’s Scripture: Matthew, Chapter 6. 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 another blockbuster, isn’t it?
Servant: Yes, it explodes our usual way of acting.
D: Jesus says that when I give, pray and fast, keep it just between God and myself. (verses 1-18)
S: Yes, because when we keep it secret we’ll be rewarded by God and not by man.
D: In verses 9-13, Jesus teaches us how to pray by using the Lord’s Prayer as a model.
S: Then in verses 14-15, Jesus teaches us to forgive others if we want God to forgive us.
D: Jesus even tells us in verses 19-21 to make deposits in our account in Heaven instead of just our local bank.
S: Jesus then says something our spirit knows is true, “Your heart will always be where your treasure is.” (verse 21)
D: Jesus concludes with verse 33, “But more than anything else, put God’s work first and do what He wants. Then all the other things (food, housing, clothes, transportation et al) will be yours as well”
S: God’s work for us is to make 12 end times disciples who do likewise. Our rewards will come to us from Jesus Himself.
D: I want to begin getting my 12 people as soon as possible. What’s the first step?
S: Pray. It worked for Jesus and will work for you, too.
D: Good idea. Should the 12 be new or old Christians?
S: Primarily new but your 12 may include some of your Christian friends.
D: How can I approach my Christian friends?
S: It’s easy. Always get permission first by asking, “May I ask you a question?” Most people will say, “Sure”.
D: That opens the door. What’s next?
S: Simply say, “How many disciples have you made for Jesus?”
D: That’s easy. It’s what you asked me on Day 1.
S: Yes and, like you, most people will answer, “None”.
D: What should I say then?
S: Explain that Jesus tells us in the Great Commission to “ make disciples” for Him.
D: That’s our memory scripture for this week. What do I do next?
S: Just show them a copy of Month 1, Days 1 & 2 from the training guide. They say it all.
D: If people express an interest, may I invite them to our weekly gathering?
S: Yes, that will let them experience first hand how end times discipleship can help them make 12 disciples for Jesus who do likewise.
D: Thanks for this easy approach. I’ll do it this week.
S: You’ll be pleased with the results.
