21-Day Growth Challenge: "Growing Deeper, Higher & Closer in Christ"

Wednesday, December 30, 2009 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

I trust that you have been blessed by my daily postings since the first of October. It is a joy to serve you and inspire you through the Word of God. I'm going to take the blog in a different direction beginning January 3, 2010. On that day, I am leading our congregation and friends to a special 21-day growth challenge titled: "Growing Deeper, Higher, Wider & Closer in Christ Jesus." Two of the key scriptures for this journey from Ephesians (New Living Translation):
Eph. 1:15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. 
Eph. 4:16 He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

One definition of "challenge" is: "To arouse or stimulate especially by presenting with tasks." This 21-day growth challenge will include a daily reading, a special prayer (with fasting for certain days), and a simple "action item" to encourage us become a "doers" of the Word. It should not take more than 1/2 hour to complete each day's tasks. It's going to be a joyous and fruitful journey together!
