New Life – A better way…

This past Sunday, Dale Losch delivered the sermon at New Life. If you missed hearing it, I suggest you listen to it online here: http://www.newlifekc.org/Media/Default.aspx#/Home.During the sermon, Dale clearly communicated the power of discipleship. Over the past few days, I have been impressed to challenge our New Life church family to do somethingREVOLUTIONARY!!!!

Disciple one person in 2013!!!

Imagine if each of us simply obeyed the Great Commission and discipled one person this next year….

This is not as easy as it sounds…but I know it will be worth it. If you agree to accept this challenge, you will not regret it.

The New Life leadership is going to offer some accountability to 64 people.

Why accountability? Because we need it!

Why 64 people? Because if we double every year, at the end of 6 years (the age New Life will turn in April of 2013) we would have 64 disciples.

This is something that anyone can do, whether you are experienced, or not. Help and support will be available for you every step along the way. The process to disicple one person in 2013 will likely look something like this:
·         Create a prayer list of people you know who don’t know Jesus
·         As you meet new people who need Christ, add them to the prayer list
·         Share the Gospel often as God provides opportunities
·         After one of the people you are praying for accepts Christ, offer to read through the New Testament with her/him
·         Meet regularly to discuss your Bible reading, prayer and Bible study
·         Encourage your disciple to repeat the process

If you are willing to be one of the 64 who take this challenge, send me a reply and I will add you to the list of 64.

At the end of the sermon, Dale challenged us to purchase a copy of “Operation World” which can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Operation-World-Definitive-Prayer-Nation/dp/0830857249/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354059116&sr=8-1&keywords=operation+world for $16.50.

He also challenged us to purchase a copy of his book on discipleship which can be found here:http://www.amazon.com/Better-Way-Disciples-Wherever-Happens/dp/096568301X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354059188&sr=1-1&keywords=dale+losch

You can get both books shipped to your home for $26.49.

To recap:
·         Commit to being one of the 64 willing to disciple
·         Reply and let me know
·         Pray for a disciple
·         Listen to the sermon
·         Purchase the books

This could be one of the most important decisions you ever make…to be an obedient Christian!

God Bless!
