Today in the 31-Day Challenge we read…
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28
Jesus’ last command to us was to make disciples, but it ties all the way back to the first command: be fruitful and multiply. As you explore how to make disciples through your God-given vocation, what if you could reach 1 unbeliever this week? What if you could get a Christian friend to adopt a marketplace disciple-making vision and he could reach 1 unbeliever this week? What if you could get 2 Christian friends to join you in this 31-Day Challenge and they could each reach 1 unbeliever this week? If you go it alone, you only reach 1. But if you share this vision with two Christian friends, you could (with their help and God’s) change the eternal destiny of 3 unbelievers this week! And the rest just keeps multiplying!
Your Day 19 Challenge is to talk about marketplace disciple-making with 1 or 2 of your closest Christian friends. Pray now that they would catch the vision and join forces to be a disciple that would make disciples wherever God has placed them.
Optional Homework: The simplest thing you can do right now to multiply your life and discipleship is to spread the word about the 31-Day Challenge itself. Make sure you invite others to visit this site. Dare them to sign up for the 31-Day Challenge. This not only spreads the word about making disciples in the marketplace but also gets you in the habit of telling others about a path that leads toward multiplication.
