Today in the 30-Day Challenge we read…


And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” – 2 Tim. 2:2

What exactly does the discipleship or training process look like? It resembles teaching someone a skill. First there’s a demonstration, followed by a practice (on the part of the student), in which the trainer helps the learner do the activity correctly. Next, the discipler watches while the learner puts the skill into practice. Finally, the discipler sets the learner free to implement the new activity.

This might seem like plain common sense. But unfortunately, all too many Christians are still focused on absorbing new content, yet never putting anything into practice.
Today’s Challenge is to watch at least one of the training videos below, then go find at least one friend to which you can explain this process. In the obedience, we will often find the true absorption of the content. Don’t forget to imagine the process in your own life. Envision yourself putting this skill into motion to spread God’s Kingdom. Now… let’s go out and DO it.
