The Word of the Lord Endures Forever

February 19, 2016

1 Peter 1:23-25

23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 24 because

“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”

This morning I was reading through 1 Peter, and seeing several powerful verses about the Word of God, He stirred something inside of me.

Recently I have also had a few discussions with a several of you about getting back on track in the Word.

So to bring all this together I feel the Holy Spirit placed on my heart a desire for us to do a 50 day Bible Challenge!

As many of you may know, the name of our ministry is I Challenge You. We are here to challenge you to a stronger faith in Jesus Christ. To be better men in Christ, to be better husbands and better fathers. My heart yearns for those of you that are struggling in your faith, and I want to help. For those of you that already are on track with a consistent Bible reading plan, keep doing your thing! For those of you that do not have a consistent plan or maybe want to supplement what you are already doing, lets do it!

If this does not appeal to you, think about your reasons why it does not? I’m thinking of one word…

Why 50 days? Because we are going to start in the book of Genesis, and Genesis has 50 chapters.

The goal is that we all set aside a time block in the morning, start your day in the Word of God. Things do happen, so if you miss a morning, no problem. Do it at night. You miss the night, no problem, double down the next morning. I wouldn’t suggest more than a day missed, this may lead us back down bad habit lane.

I understand for some of you this may take some serious work and discipline. Men, if this is you it will be so worth it!

Jesus taught us that His Word is food for our soul. Without it we are spiritually starving!

So if you are interested we will start on Monday, February 22. Email me (before that!) and let me know your thoughts, and even concerns, so I can help. Every morning (or night) you get up just shoot me a quick email when you are done. Men, you could even try to get your wives on board with you! That would be so awesome!

1 Peter 2:1-3

Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord  is gracious.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    A blessed day! I just read your post on the 50-day challenge.

    I will start this today (even though you and others had already started on the 22nd of Feb). If it’s not asking for too much, may I have your email address so I can update you regarding my 50-day progress, and we may share a common journey in Christ?

    Looking forward to a stronger faith! God bless us!
