Today in the 30-Day Challenge we read…

“…they welcomed the message with eagerness and examined the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.”  – Acts 17:11

As we learned yesterday, an important component of disciple making is self-feeding.  Today we will continue to build on this concept by discussing Interpreting & Applying the Word.  One way to begin doing this is to develop a CHAT group which consist of 2 or 3 individuals of the same gender.  This group would meet together weekly to:

  1. Pray for 1 or 2 lost people that are known by a person(s) in the group;
  2. Read 25 – 30 chapters of scripture a week;
  3. and provide life accountability (applications/lessons learned/general topics that help track their spiritual maturity).

The challenge for the day is to watch the Self-Feeding Word video and view the Three Thirds Group Format sheet below.  Begin praying and thinking about who could join you in starting your own group. Also — Continue your SOAPs as mentioned on Day 20.”

Here’s a Guidesheet for helping us implement three-thirds (i.e., Discovery Bible) studies (DBSes)..
