Going! (Week 6 of the Red Letter Challenge)
Saturday, February 15, 2020
SUNDAY (Day 34): At some point today, gather your family or roommates or friends and share what God has done for you. This might be over dinner. Pray with your family and have everyone in the family pray at least one sentence. Try doing this as a family for a week. If you don’t know what to pray, start by thanking God for all He has done.
MONDAY (Day 35): Read Matthew 25:35 - “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Say hello to some neighbors you haven’t met yet. Get in a new social circle and meet new people. Try talking to someone you’ve seen before, but haven’t taken the time to really get to know yet.
TUESDAY (Day 36): Read Acts 1:8 - “You will be my witnesses.” Write down your testimony. Think of this as your “elevator pitch”. You have a limited amount of time to tell a story – make that time count! Here’s an example of what you can focus on (you can use this as a template):
- What your life was like before Christ (or what it would have been like).
- How you came to know Christ.
- Point to the Gospel. Share that Christ alone, not works, has saved you.
- How your life is different today because of Christ.
- Share a passage of Scripture which means a great deal to you.
WEDNESDAY (Day 37): Read Luke 9:60 - “Go and proclaim the Kingdom of God.” This is a hard one. We want you to record a video of the testimony you wrote yesterday. That takes guts – because you’re putting yourself out there. Remember, Jesus goes with you in all things. Don’t underestimate what God can do through you and your story.
THURSDAY (Day 38): Read Mark 16:15 - “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Write down five people in your life who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Talk to one of those five today about your testimony. Make a plan over the next month to speak with the other four. This should go without saying, but make sure when you talk with them that you are also there to listen to them about anything they may be going through.
FRIDAY (Day 39): Read John 15:16 - “You did not choose Me, but I chose and appointed you.” Just as God chose you before you ever did anything to please Him, choose someone today who hasn’t done anything to earn your favor and find a way to bless that person.
SATURDAY (Day 40): Read Matthew 28:19 - “Go therefore and make disciples.” Identify one to two people who are mature disciples of Jesus and ask them to mentor you. If you are already a mature follower of Jesus Christ, seek out one or two people to whom you could be a mentor.
