M28 Training - Session 3

M28 Lifestyle

M28 is a lifestyle, not a program. People who engage in the M28 process are imprinted from the very first day with the DNA of spiritual multiplication. M28 works in any culture and dimension of society.

IMPORTANT: M28 is about a disciple-making lifestyle, not just Bible discovery.

Mark 4:3-9

3 “Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seed. 4 As he scattered it across his field, some of the seed fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate it. 5 Other seed fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seed sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. 6 But the plant soon wilted under the hot sun, and since it didn’t have deep roots, it died. 7 Other seed fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants so they produced no grain. 8 Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they sprouted, grew, and produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!” 9 Then he said, “Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”
