LESSON Month 01-Day 19
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: John 3:16
Today’s Scripture: Matthew 14:1-21. 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 today’s scripture reading, Jesus tries to get some time alone after hearing that Herod had murdered His cousin, John the Baptist.
Servant: Jesus crossed the Sea of Galilee but still the crowds found Him.
D: How did Jesus respond? He felt sorry for them, healed their sick and then even fed 5,000 men plus women and children with just 5 loaves of bread and 7 fish.
S: And there were 12 baskets of leftovers.
D: Didn’t El Paso’s Rick Thomas see a miraculous multiplication of food one Christmas at the dump in Juarez, Mexico?
S: Yes, and my precious wife was one of the young women who participated.
D: What a God we serve!
S: Keep this in mind, in John 14:12 Jesus says, “I tell you for certain that if you have faith in Me, you will do the same things that I am doing.” Have faith in Jesus and see multiplications of food, healings and other miracles. Those will help attract your 12.
D: I am going to ask God, with faith, to baptize me with the Holy Spirit. How and when He does it is up to God.
S: Fine, it may happen right away or you may have to wait. For example, Jesus told his followers in Acts 1:3, “Don’t leave Jerusalem yet. Wait here for the Father to give you the Holy Spirit, just as I told you he has promised to do. John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
D: Did they get the Holy Spirit?
S: Yes. It took 10 days of praying “in one accord”, but they received the Holy Spirit.
D: What happened?
S: Read it for yourself in Acts 2.
D: That’s exciting. How do I get the Holy Spirit?
S: Ask and you shall receive.
D: That’s from the Sermon on the Mount, right?
D: What’s next?
S: May I ask you a question?
D: Sure. What?
S: Who can accomplish more through your body, you or God?
D: No contest, God can. Why do you ask?
S: Are you willing to say to the Holy Spirit, “I want God’s will to be done through my body, not my will”?
D: I am. What’s the next step?
S: We’ll cover more tomorrow.
D: In the meanwhile, I’m going to tell some of my friends about this 12 for Jesus training. It’s eye opening.
S: I knew you’d love it.
