The Weekly Podcast Encouraging and Equipping Young Men Around the World to "Stay Sharp" in Their Faith and Relationships

Monthly Challenges

This year on the podcast, we’re partnering with Courageous Men of the Word to bring you a new way to apply God’s Word to your life! 

Each month we’ll put forth a challenge that goes along with a theme for that month–a practical task or goal to help you grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord. Each week in our ScriptureFocus segments on the podcast, we’ll share verses to help and encourage you in the challenge along the way. Then, at the end of the month, we’ll share what we’ve been learning through the challenge in our CMOW episode! 

We’ll also give you the opportunity to share your testimonies as we seek to grow together in our walk with God!

Days remaining in the current challenge!

January 2019: Goal Setting

For the month of January, we’re focusing on goal setting in light of Luke 2:52, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” This verse provides an excellent roadmap to see which areas in our lives we need to be growing in, no matter what our age is! 

Here’s the challenge. Set a long-term goal for this year in each of these areas:

  • Growing in wisdom (application of knowledge)
  • Growing in stature (physical ability and maturity)
  • Growing in “favor with God” (depth of relationship)
  • Growing in “favor with man” (compassion, graciousness, and love)

Be sure to pray about this challenge and ask the Lord what areas He would have you to specifically focus on in the new year! Listen throughout the month for encouragement in setting goals and seeking the Lord in all that we do. As January progresses, let us know how you’re doing by emailing us or commenting on the website. If you get to us by January 24th, we’d love to share some of that feedback in our CMOW episode!
