Dear Friend in Christ,
It’s Day Four of The Great Experiment! May God continue to enrich and bless you as you seek Him with your whole heart. We are striving for a new normal in American Christianity. The Global church and the Historic church knew that morning and evening devotions, fasting, repentance, intense prayer and other means of grace did much to attract the presence of God and strengthen Christians. This has largely been forgotten in our current age. God loves us, is with us and releases His purposes in our lives as we seek Him according to His standards and not our own.
You can expect increased fellowship with Him as you draw closer to Him.
Yours in Christ,
Founder and CEO, Christian Union
Here is today’s guide for the “Five Rs” of The Great Experiment, March 1-10, 2019.
1. Read and Pray
John 15:4 - “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.”
Read John 15:1-17 for more context.
Today’s Prayer Points
- Thank the Lord for His abiding presence of the Holy Spirit.
- Take time to offload all of your anxieties onto the Lord.
Draw all of your needs from Jesus. Tell Him what you need and receive them from Him by faith and the power of the Spirit.
What sins do I need to repent of today? What hindrances to my devotion to Christ can I remove today?
3. Respond to the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, what is the one thing you most want me to do today? (Write it down, and do it today).
4. Represent Christ.
How will I bear witness to Christ today? With whom shall I share the Gospel today?
5. Raise Your Faith.
God, give me the strength and courage to complete my Joshua Faith Challenge.
