Epic Challenge Day 13
Read Genesis 1:26-31,
What is the problem here? When did Eve sin?
Where does the sin originate?
Eve decided in her heart that she loved herself and her desires more than God. She chooses the temptation of her own desires of what God had told her.
Isn't this what happens to us. We choose our desires over God, we choose self, over our savior. All sin at its root is selfish. It's about what we want.
It's time to trust God, it's time to realize that what He has for us, really is better.
What does it take for us to realize God only wants good for us.
Prayer: God help me to give up self, to surrender self to you. Lead in my life today.
Spend 5 minutes asking God to teach you to surrender to His will for your life.
Spend 5 minutes praying that God will give you 1 person today to share the gospel with.
Epic Challenge, Epic day #12
There is something that is very important to our relationship with Christ that is not very popular among modern people.
However it is essential, if you want to grow in your Christian walk you cannot leave this out.
As Christian's we must be Obedient!
Now, I know that this is a scary term, and before you scream, "Grace" I will repeat the word. God calls us to obedience.
You cannot be successful as a Christ Follower without obedience.
The very word follower implies that you will obey.
What was the main problem in Gen 3?
Read Genesis 3:1-15
God told them not to eat, but they ate? God asks us many times in scripture to be faithful, to obey. Will you obey? Are you willing to obey and make changes in your life?
Read Acts 2:40-47
They continued steadfast, will you give up the ways of the world and follow after Christ?
Will you do as Jesus asks?
Prayer: Lord lead me in my life today to know how I can obey you. Teach me to follow you wherever you may lead.
Epic Challenge Day 11
Yesterday we talked about Jesus healing, and rather than Him telling the person He healed that they were healed, He would often tell them instead that their sins were forgiven.
Why would Jesus tell them this? Rather then I fixed you physically, He tells them I fixed you Spiritually.
James Chapter 5 has an interesting take on this.
Read: James 5: 13-16
What does it mean, that when you pray for the sick, your prayer is for them to be saved, not healed? Could it be that real healing is that of salvation? Of course, Jesus can heal the sick, but isn't it more important that He save us?
What was Jesus Mission?
Prayer: Lord God of heaven, we need your healing, physically and spiritually. Heal our bodies Lord, but more importantly save us, that we can truly be healed.
Epic Challenge day 10
What did Jesus tell people that he had healed, that their sins were forgiven?
Read Matthew 9:1-13
Why was Jesus healing? Was he setting an example?
Why does He then say He desires mercy not sacrifice?
Do you need His healing? Do you need physical or spiritual Healing?
Read 2 Corinthians 5
Prayer: Lord God of heaven, you know our needs, and our hearts. You are the creator God, heal us Lord from the way we run to sin. Make our hearts new that we may be how you meant us to be.
