  2. Who did you train?

LOOK UP (1/3 of your time)

Tell the Story: The Wise & Foolish Builder from Matthew 7:24-27

Retell the Story together. Matthew 7:24-27

Read the Story aloud. Matthew 7:24-27

*As you continue with Long Term Discipleship it may become difficult to story New Testament Letters. In this case read the text aloud and have each person read it several times silently.

Discover:

Pray then use the Sword Bible Study Method to discuss the story and reveal its meaning for our lives.

Practice:

Practice retelling 3-Circles, My Story, or One of the previous 9 stories

LOOK Forward (1/3 of your time)

OBEY - TRAIN - SHARE (never skip)

Have everyone in the group pray for the spirit to show them how to answer these questions, then make commitments, write the commitments down and share commitments with the group each week.

  1. How will you obey this passage?
  2. With who will you share your story or God's story with?

COMMISSION & PRAYER

Pray and ask God to prepare the hearts of the people who will be hearing about Jesus this week. Ask him to give you the strength to be obedient to your commitments.
