The April Challenge!
For the month of April, we’re going to be focusing on Easter, and preparing our hearts to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus—the One who was called in John 1:29, “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” As we consider the sacrifice He made for us (and the debt which He paid), we’d like to both look deeply at our own hearts, as well as praise God for His grace and mercy!
In keeping with the idea of sacrifice, here’s our challenge for this month: Choose an area to make a physical sacrifice each week, by fasting in a certain area such as food, entertainment, or social media.
The goal for this month is to experience physical sacrifice and to exercise self-control through the Biblical discipline of fasting. As we head throughout the month, ask God to open your eyes to the sin in your heart and your need for Him. Take time to think about what Jesus did now nearly two thousand years ago, giving His perfect, sinless life to pay the debt we could not pay. Praise God for His amazing gift of mercy, grace, and salvation. Join us on the podcast each week as we seek to do each of those aspects this month!
